The Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources System (FDLRS) provides diagnostic and instructional support services to district exceptional student education programs and families of students with exceptionalities statewide. There are 19 centers in Florida. FDLRS East proudly serves Volusia County Schools. The four main functions of FDLRS are Child Find, Human Resource Development (HRD), Parent Services, and Technology Services.
Child Find assists parents and schools in the early identification of children who are at risk of developing special or unique needs and who are not being served in a public school. Child Find's target age group is birth through 21 years, but primary emphasis is placed on children birth to 5 years of age.
FDLRS Parent Services provides information, training, and support to districts and families, in order to promote effective parent participation in the education of children who are exceptional and/or have special needs. Parent services include assistance in the development of family-friendly programs, training and support for services for children with disabilities, and the support of partnerships between schools and parents to support student achievement.
FDLRS Human Resources Development (HRD) and Technology function personnel collaboratively plan and provide information, training, technical assistance/consultation and resources related to effective instructional strategies and a variety of technologies for teachers, professional staff, students, and parents for the education of children and youth who are exceptional and/or have unique needs based on locally assessed needs and established priorities.
The Florida Inclusion Network (FIN) collaborates with all districts and schools to provide customized services and supports ensuring all students with disabilities have the same educational, social, and future opportunities as their peers.
