Mission Statement

The Imperial County SELPA is dedicated to the belief that all students can learn and that students with disabilities must be guaranteed equal opportunity to become contributing members of society. To that end, the SELPA facilitates high quality educational programs and services for students with disabilities, and training for parents and educators. The SELPA collaborates with county agencies and school districts to develop and maintain healthy and enriching environments in which students with disabilities and their families can live and succeed.

Imperial County SELPA is proud to partner with the California Autism Professional Training and Information Network, (CAPTAIN ) by promoting the use of evidence- based practices for students with Autism.
