Program Description
Adams Wells Special Services Cooperative is a cooperative formed by the six school districts in Adams and Wells counties to provide services to students with disabilities. The cooperative, in response to the Individuals with Disabilities act (IDEA) and Indiana's Article 7 offers comprehensive program for students aged 3 to 22. Most of the programs are provided to the students in their neighborhood school.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is a federal law which guarantees all students with disabilities the right to a free appropriate public education designed to meet their individual needs. It also offers protections for the rights of students with disabilities and their parents, guardians, or educational surrogate parents.
