The Texas Education Agency has rolled out Supplemental Special Education Services (SSES) for students with autism and other disabilities. The SSES program provides eligible parents/caregivers with access to funds that can be used to address the impact of COVID-19 school closures.
Supplemental Special Education Services (SSES) are on-line accounts for eligible parents/caregivers of students with significant and complex disabilities that have been impacted by COVID-19 school closures. Families of students with eligible disabilities can use the on-line accounts to obtain special educational resources and supplies and/or services such as additional speech therapy or other specific services. SSES credits are up to $1,500 per student to be used to supplement what otherwise happens in school to help students continue to make educational progress.
The SSES program has specific eligibility criteria please make sure that you have verified that your student meets the eligibility criteria by reviewing the Program Overview and Eligibility Requirements at the SSES website with the Texas Education Agency.
