Parent Support Resources

Special Education Parent HandbookThis handbook is intended to give parents a basic grounding in the special education process and the use of collaborative strategies and facilitation skills and techniques to improve that process. We hope to give parents tips, tools, tactics, and educator perspective—all of which will enhance collaboration with the school team. Ultimately, better collaboration among the adults in your child’s life will improve his or her educational outcomes.

This transition and employment guide (English / Spanish) is for you, the student in Texas public school, who may have received special education services due to a disability. It also provides helpful information for your parents. This guide has steps you and your parents can take to make sure you are able to find the right work or educational choices for you after high school. It also tells you where to get the services you will need after high school. The guide is divided into sections on Self Advocacy, Transition Services, Employment and Supported Employment, Social Security Programs, Community and Long Term Services and Supports, Postsecondary Educational Programs and Services, Information Sharing, and Guardianship and Alternatives. Each section has phone numbers, emails, and websites to help you find what you need. At the end of each section and at the end of the guide, you will find a timeline of steps that you and your parents can take as you make the transition from student to adult.
If you have questions about this guide or the information in it, please send an email to the Texas Education Agency at, or contact Heather Kercheville, Lago Vista ISD Director of Special Education, at

The Special Education Information Center (SPEDTex) provides resources and interactive features for increasing family awareness of disabilities and special education processes, with the goal of improving partnerships between schools and families.
