Special Education

Special education and support programs

Sewell has a dedicated team of professionals who work with our students that receive special education and support services. For many of our special needs students, their individualized learning programs incorporate participation in the general education setting for part or most of their day. This valuable inclusion creates a diverse and rewarding community of learners that benefits all students on campus. Sewell currently has two Adaptive Behavior and Communication (ABC) classes, one Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) Kindergarten class, a Resource program, dyslexia therapy, inclusion services, speech services, English language learner supports, and an intervention specialist. All children in Garland ISD are entitled to receive free and appropriate education that meets their educational needs. To find out more about special education in Garland, the district has detailed information available online.
