Florida Diagnostic & Learning Resources System (FDLRS)

The Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources System (FDLRS) is a discretionary project of the Florida Department of Education (FDOE) Bureau of Exceptional Education and Student Services (BEESS). BEESS directly supports the FLDOE's Guiding Principles and Strategic Initiatives. 

FDLRS provides diagnostic and instructional support services to district exceptional student education programs statewide. Throughout Florida there are 18 Associate Centers, serving one to nine districts each, and 2 Specialized Centers that serve the entire State of Florida.

FDLRS collaborates with districts, agencies, communities, and other personnel and educational entities providing education and support for students with disabilities.

The four central functions of each FDLRS Associate Centers are Child Find, Parent & Family Services, Human Resource Development, and Technology.

The functions and activities of each Associate Center are consistent with Sections 229.832, 229.834, and 220.8341 of the Florida Statutes.

Selected activities are determined by the Florida Department of Education for all Centers to participate in support of the State goals. Local school districts identify additional activities based on locally assessed needs.


The vision of the Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources System (FDLRS) is that every child receiving exceptional student education services will be able to achieve their fullest potential from prekindergarten through postsecondary opportunities, resulting in college, career, and life readiness.

The mission of the Florida Diagnostic and Learning Resources System (FDLRS) is to support and enhance exceptional student education programs by providing evidence-based, high-quality professional learning opportunities; integrating assistive and instructional technology; promoting family engagement; and ensuring access to early intervention services.
