Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Governor DeWine has closed Ohio's schools.  During this time our staff will be working remotely.  If you need assistance, do not hesitate to contact us at (740) 474-7529 and leave a voicemail for the appropriate person or leave a general voicemail.  You are also welcomed to contact the PCESC by email at [email protected]  Please indicate the person and/or reason of your email and it will be forwarded.  We will reply as soon as possible.
All PCESC meetings, events, and background check services will be postponed until Governor DeWine terminates the school closure order.
Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter.

Special Education
School districts across the state of Ohio are participating in an effort to identify, locate, and evaluate children from birth through 21 years of age who may have disabilities.  Pickaway County Educational Service Center collaborates with all local districts and the Pickaway County Board of MRDD to assist in this process.  All partners search for children having such conditions as hearing impairment, visual impairments, speech or language impairments, specific learning disabilities, emotional disturbances, autism, multiple disabilities, mental retardation, other health impairments, and traumatic brain injury.  Public schools are required and are committed to the provision of a free and appropriate public education, regardless of the child's disability.  Many children with disabilities are not found to receive and address their needs until they reach school age.  These children may not be visible as a part of the mainstream community, such as children of homeless families or migrant families.  Also, unidentified children with disabilities are often preschoolers.  Parents may not be aware their child has a disability or that there are programs and services available.  
School districts are interested in meeting the needs of children with disabilities.  If you have or know of a child who may have a disability, contact your local school district or the listed Educational Service Center (ESC) contacts provided as follows:
