We offer state of the art direct speech and language therapy through teleconference pathways. Students receive services no matter how remote the location or regardless of weather conditions. We use research based methods to service our students who require this type of therapy to help them communicate and order their language.

At Esmeralda County School District, we take pride in our special education department. We realize that all students can learn and that many students learn differently. We have diversified instruction and use multiple technologies to accommodate a variety of learning styles. We celebrate multiple intelligence and empower all students to engage in a high level of global thinking and have a track record of best possible student outcomes.
The Esmeralda County School District has the responsibility to locate, assess and identify children ages 3-5 who are not enrolled in any school program and who may have some kind of developmental delay(s). If your child is currently being served through Nevada Early Intervention, please contact us about 90 days prior to your child turning 3 years of age. If you live anywhere within Esmeralda County, contact us to arrange an initial phone pre-screening at (775)485-3215
“Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as hard duty. Never regard study as duty but as the enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later work belongs.” ― Albert Einstein
