San Joaquin County SELPA support is provided to these districts upon request and may include consultation and/or direct service. San Joaquin County SELPA acts as an interagency liaison and bridge between community resources and student needs. San Joaquin County SELPA has been in operation providing support to students, families, and districts since 1981.
