Special Education Services

Butler County Educational Service Center (BCESC) is proud to support local school districts by providing services for children with special needs. These services include occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech language therapy, audiology services, hearing-impaired teacher services, vision-impaired teacher services, orientation and mobility services, school psychology services and behavioral coaching as well as programming for students in need of preschool special education. 


As parents, there are times we all struggle with the growth and development of our children. It can be complex, challenging and rewarding. If you have a child with special needs, the appropriate educational setting and services are key to ensuring their educational success. Navigating special education can seem complicated and sometimes difficult to understand. BCESC works with school districts and parents to design and implement plans to meet the challenges children with disabilities often face.



All children are special in their own unique ways, and all children need support to succeed. Our special education staff has the experience, knowledge and understanding required to meet the needs of all children, and we look forward to the opportunity to design and build a custom-tailored program just for you.
