Programs and Services

• Assistive Technology (AT) - Any item, piece of equipment, or system, whether acquired commercially, modified, or customized, that is commonly used to increase, maintain, or improve functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.

• Behavior Specialists - Behavior Specialists are trained professionals who, in the local schools to help, coordinate Functional Assessments of Behavior and Behavior Intervention Plans that address students’ inappropriate behaviors and provide a means to help the students become more academically successful.

• Evaluation Services/Child Find - Child Find is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screening and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and refer as early as possible all young children with disabilities and their families who are in need of Early Intervention Program (Part C) or Preschool Special Education (Part B/619) services of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)

• Extended School Year Services (ESY) – is an individualized instructional program for eligible students with disabilities that are provided beyond the regular school year. The need for ESY services must be determined on an individual basis by the admission, review, and dismissal (ARD) committee.

• Homebound Services (HB) - is an instructional arrangement for providing special education instruction to eligible students with disabilities who are served at home or hospital bedside. These students are expected to be confined for a minimum of four consecutive weeks as documented by a physician licensed to practice in the United States. Instruction may also be provided to chronically ill students who are expected to be confined for any period of time totaling a least four weeks throughout the school year as documented by a physician licensed to practice in the U.S.. Home instruction may be provided as an option for eligible students with disabilities as a result of disciplinary action relating to discipline of students with disabilities. Home instruction may also be used for services to infants and toddlers when determined appropriate by the individualized family services plan (IFSP) committee. This also applies to students who receive services from a school district that provides education solely to students confined to or educated in hospitals.

• Occupational Therapy (OT) - provided for developmental, corrective, and other supportive services required to assist the student with a disability to benefit educationally.

• Physical Therapy (PT) - physical therapists work with other professionals to assist children with disabilities to access their education. This includes activities of a school day, like: moving throughout school grounds, sitting, standing in line or at the board, moving in class or through the building. The school therapist’s focus is not on correcting the student’s disability, but enabling the student to participate in school within the limits of the disability.

• Speech Therapy - Provided for the evaluation and intervention of communication disorders of articulation, language, fluency and voice. Provided for eligible students whose communication skills adversely affect their developmental and/or academic skills.

• Adapted Physical Education (APE) – Physical Education services, specially designed where necessary, will be provided as an integral part of the educational program of each student with disabilities.

• Services for Students with Vision Impairments - Services are provided to children from birth through age twenty-two, who have been identified as visually impaired. The unique needs of the child with visual impairment are addressed for children of all developmental levels.

• Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) - This program is for our youngest students. Children who are identified as having a disability are eligible for our PPCD program when they turn 3 years old. This program focuses on helping the children overcome developmental delays in areas such as cognitive, physical and speech. Parents who think their child may have a developmental delay are encouraged to call their child’s campus and ask about scheduling a screening.
