Education Service Center Technical Assistance

Each regional education service center will provide leadership, training, and technical assistance in the area of special education for students with disabilities in accordance with the Texas Education Agency's focus on increasing student achievement. Each regional education service center (ESC) will continue to serve as the first point of contact for school districts, parents, and other community stakeholders, and will provide for the joint training of parents and special education, related services, and general education personnel. 

Contact your regional ESC when you need technical assistance, information about special education practices, specific topic information or training opportunities, location or identification of special education resources.
