  • An intellectual disability is defined as significantly below average general intellectual and adaptive functioning manifested during the developmental period, with significant delays in academic skills. Developmental period refers to birth to eighteen (18) years of age.

    Broward County Public Schools provides a variety of specialized services to approximately 2,000 students with Intellectual Disabilities, ages 3-22.

    These services are individualized based upon student needs and are determined through the IEP Process. Supports may include instruction in the Florida Standards Access Points for English Language Arts and Mathematics and the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards for Science and Social Studies. In addition, life skills related to independent functioning, social/emotional behavior, communication and related services such as physical and/or occupational therapy, nursing and specialized transportation are also provided to students as needed.
