• We are ESC Liaisons

    "Disrupting the status quo to change learning trajectories."   

    Special Education Liaisons in all 20 service centers provide boots on the ground support. With extensive training in Design Thinking and The Four Disciplines of Execution, Liaisons are uniquely equipped to provide support to LEAs in their efforts to positively impact outcomes of students with disabilities. This is just one of the many ways that SPED Liaisons connect resources and supports across Texas to improve outcomes for students with disabilities. As the role of Special Education Liaisons continues to be adapted in response to the evolving needs of our LEAs, turn to them for innovative resources, supports, and services.
