JBSD Cares:   Children with Disabilities 

Sometimes students struggle and when this happens, we are here to help.  We have a variety of services available.  Please inquire with a teacher, a principal or Dr. Mary Jefferson-Gough, our Elementary Principal and Director of Special Education, if you have any questions about the services we provide or disabilities.  Please call us at 330-876-2860 for more information.

Disabilities may include such conditions as hearing impairments, visual impairments, speech or language impairments, specific learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, autism, and traumatic brain injuries.  Many unidentified children with disabilities are preschoolers.  Parents may not be aware their child has a disability or that there are programs and services available.
