Special Education Services and Supports include programs and services that support local school districts in their efforts to provide special education and related services to students with disabilities.
Throughout out students' school years, our goal is always to help the students be self-sufficient, responsible, contributors to their school community and good self-advocates as they enter the world. We feel that all of our students can accomplish great things if they use their strengths to the best of their abilities.
Emotional support Services may vary from school to school, from teacher to teacher, and from child to child based on needs. The students receive services on an itinerant level and are fully included in the general education setting.
Students receiving learning support services are included in the general education classes as much as possible. Depending on need, students can also receive direct instruction in the area of reading, writing, comprehension, or in some cases can receive content area instruction in the learning support environment.
Multiple Disabilities/Life Skills Support
The Multiple Disabilities/Life Skills Support staff provides support to students with a wide range of individualized needs. We support students in the general education setting, as well as assist in providing individualized instruction. In addition to fostering peer relationships, students learn to be responsible and independent learners and to develop a good foundation for learning they will use well beyond their school years.
Hearing loss in students varies from mild or fluctuating conductive losses to profound loss that cannot be aided. Some students do not use any hearing aids while others have one or two hearing aids and sometimes FM systems. If needed, we provide a sign language interpreter.
