Bryan ISD provides special education services to children with disabilities to meet their unique needs. These educational programs are provided in a variety of settings, including general education, in-class support, content mastery, special education classrooms, the student's home, or a hospital setting. Students must be identified as eligible for special education through a referral and evaluation process. The district also provides related services when required to access or support their special education program including, but not limited to: transportation, occupational and physical therapy, individual or group counseling, and a work-study program.

To qualify for special education, students must have been evaluated in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) of 2004, and meet disability condition criteria in at least one of the following areas:
  • Speech Impairment
  • Hearing Impairment (including deafness)
  • Visual Impairment (including blindness)
  • Orthopedic Impairment
  • Autism
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Emotional Disturbance
  • Intellectual Disability
  • Other Health Impairment
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Deaf-Blindness
  • Multiple Disabilities
  • Noncategorical Early Childhood
Special education is offered at no cost to parents to meet the needs of an eligible child with a disability, including instruction conducted in the classroom, in the home, in hospitals and institutions, and in other settings, and instruction in physical education.

The instruction offered through special education has been changed in content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to address the unique needs of a child that will result from that child's disability and to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that he or she can meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the public agency that apply to all children.
