LOS ANGELES COUNTY OFFICE OF EDUCATION
LEGAL NOTICE
EDUCATIONAL SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE FOR INDIVIDUALSWITH DISABILITIES, BIRTH THROUGH 21 YEARS OF AGE
Parents who suspect their child has a mental or physical disability are advised to contact their local school district or the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE), according to Office of Education officials. Federal and state laws require public schools to provide free and appropriate education for children with disabilities.  Youngsters from birth through 21 years of age may qualify for special education programs in public schools. Specialists in education for the disabled will help parents identify appropriate programs, regardless of the type of disability. In Los Angeles County, the Office of Education operates many educational programs for children with disabilities by participating in regional planning programs with school districts known as Special Education Local Plan Areas (SELPAs). Students, parents/guardians or others who have any concerns about discrimination or who wish to file complaints should first contact their local school district’s director of special education for information, or they may call the SELPA office numbers listed below. Information about SELPAs is available from local school districts, the Los Angeles County Office of Education’s Compliance Support Services Unit (562) 803-8338, and the following SELPA offices where the pupil resides:
