FDLRS Human Resources Development (HRD) function personnel collaboratively plan and provide information, training, technical assistance/consultation and resources related to effective instructional strategies and models for the education of children and youth who are exceptional and/or have unique needs based on locally assessed needs and established priorities. Because the majority of these children are mainstreamed, FDLRS services are.
