OSERS Mission

To improve early childhood, educational, and employment outcomes and raise expectations
for all people with disabilities, their families, their communities, and the nation.

In implementing this mission, OSERS supports programs that help educate children and youth with disabilities and provides for the rehabilitation of youth and adults with disabilities. OSERS provides a wide array of supports to parents and individuals, school districts and states in two main areas—special education and vocational rehabilitation—through its two main components: OSEP and RSA.

OSERS Vision

All Americans with disabilities will live and thrive with their disabilities in their own communities.
