Welcome To Special Education

  • Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD) is committed to meeting the needs of children.  Special Education means specially designed instruction that is freely provided to individuals with exceptional needs.  Our Special Education Department offers a variety of programs and services that adapt content, teaching methodology and delivery of instruction to meet the individual needs of each child.  These services are of no cost to the family and are available to children until they reach 22 years of age.

    This website is intended to provide basic information about special education services provided by Pasadena Unified School District as well as offer resources to parents.  

    Special Education is a service, not a place.
