Special Education and Autism Resources

The NWESD/Special Programs and Services Department maintains a statewide lending library and resource-linked website. The lending library continues to be expanded to include resources for educators and parents with special education needs. The Special Education Resource Library is now open for use and requests should be sent to specialeducation@nwesd.org.

To distinguish between autism and special education materials, please look for AOP (autism) or SPS (special education) in the item number for each title. Materials may be borrowed for one month. The NWESD will ship the items via USPS; the borrower is responsible for the return cost. You may also choose to pick up and return materials at the NWESD office in Anacortes.

Thank you for your continued commitment to supporting children and youth with special needs.
