      The children of Texas come in all sizes, shapes, colors and abilities.  They do not learn the same way, but they ALL learn.  Do you know of an infant, child or young adult who does not learn easily or has an impairment that might affect his/her success in life?

      Public education in Texas is for every child.  Don't leave any child behind.  For more information call the North Lamar ISD Special Education Office at 903-737-2031.
