The Education Directory for Children With Special Needs


The Education Directory for Children With Special Needs provides military families who have children with special needs the resources they need to make informed assignment decisions and experience easier transitions.

The web-based tool provides information about education and early intervention services available on or near installations within the 50 states and the District of Columbia. It also links to information for OCONUS locations with a Department of Defense Education Activity school.
