Procedural Safeguards: The Procedural Safeguards set forth in the Maine Unified Special Education Regulations are the rights that apply when children are: in the referral process for special education: or already identified under special education; or whose parents believe should be identified under special education. These are in several different languages and .pdf format.

Programs and Services: This page has many links to services offered through DHHS, including services around employment, child welfare, mental health, long term care, disabilities services, and legal help, along with hotlines to call for help in navigating the system.

A Guide to Transition Services: This is a guide developed in coordination with youth and families to walk young people with disabilities and their families through the process of transitioning from youth-oriented services to services for adults, including planning for secondary education and entering the workforce.
