Each year school districts throughout Ohio participate in an effort to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities, birth through 21. A disability means there are conditions such as a multi-handicap, hearing, visual, orthopedic, and/or other health handicaps, severe behavior disorder, and/or speech/language handicap. Many times children with disabilities are not visible because they do not function in the mainstream of a community. Parents are not always aware that there are programs and services available for these children. If you know of a child within the Foxfire School System who may have one or more of the above-suspected disabilities, including pre-school age children, please contact Caren Maniaci, Director of Special Education for Foxfire Schools at 740-453-4509.
