Special Education is an educational program designed for students whose mental ability, physical ability, or emotional functioning requires special teaching approaches, equipment, or care within or outside a regular classroom. The Special Education instruction involves techniques, exercises, and subject matter designed for students whose learning needs cannot be met by a standard school curriculum. Special Education may provide students with services such as speech therapy, physical or occupational therapy, adaptive P.E., and counseling. Vision and hearing specialists as well as an audiologist are part of the Special Education team. Special transportation is also provided for those students who need it. If you feel your child needs assessed for Special Education, please contact the psychologist at your child's school.
