To qualify for special education services a child must have a disability. The child must meet State eligibility criteria in one or more of the following areas:

*Speech or Language Impairment
*Developmental Cognitive Disability: Mild-Moderate
*Developmental Cognitive Disability: Severe-Profound
*Physical Impairment
*Deaf/Hard of Hearing
*Visual Impairment
*Specific Learning Disability
*Emotional or Behavioral Disorder
*Other Health Disability
*Autism Spectrum Disorders
*Developmental Delay (Birth to Age 7)
*Traumatic Brain Injury
*Severe Multiple Impairments

An evaluation is used to document the existence of a disability. Below average academic performance alone does not qualify a student for special education.
