There is a lot more helpful information on the SELPA website >

The Santa Barbara County SELPA (SBCSELPA) and its member districts actively seek out all individuals with exceptional needs, ages birth through 21, including infants and children, enrolled in parentally placed private schools.

Special education programs are available to all eligible students with disabilities, ages birth to 21 in Santa Barbara County.

If you are concerned about your child’s development or have reason to believe your child needs special education due to a physical, mental, emotional, learning or speech problem, you may contact either the SELPA office or your local school district Special Education Department if you have questions about referring a child for special education services.
