Each year the number of individuals enrolled in special education increases, with exponential growth over the past four years. The continued increase of individuals with intellectual, physical, and emotional disabilities has created an even greater need for programs for these individuals following high school. Texas has one of the highest populations of individuals with disabilities at 12.9%, most of whom live in Houston and the surrounding gulf coast region.
Our local community, Deer Park, made up of 7.9% of individuals with disabilities while the surrounding communities of Pasadena and La Porte have 8.1% and 11.6% respectively.
