In Florida, children who have special
learning needs are called exceptional students.
Exceptional students include children who are gifted and children who have disabilities.
Children who are considered gifted are those children with superior intellectual development
and who are capable of high performance. The purpose of exceptional student education
(ESE) is to help each child with an exceptional to progress in public school and prepare for
life after school. ESE services include specially designed instruction to meet the unique needs
of the exceptional student. There is no charge for these special services.
