Special Services Profile
The Board of Education provides all educationally handicapped students with special education and related services appropriate to their needs. The spectrum of services includes out-of-district programs, self-contained classes, resource center classes (both in-class and pull-out), and full mainstreaming. Support services include speech and language, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling. These support services are based upon individual student needs as identified by the Child Study Team. The supervisor provides leadership for a wide range of support personnel, including school psychologists, social workers, learning consultants, instructional aides, speech therapists, special education teachers, and related services personnel.
Child Study Team
The Child Study Team includes a certified School Psychologist, a School Social Worker, and a Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant. The team works collectively to both identify and assist at-risk students and to determine, through appropriate professional assessment, if special education services are in order. Although decisions, recommendations are rendered through a team approach, each team member has an individual area of expertise: the School Psychologist works with students experiencing personal problems that impact their ability to function in school; the School Social Worker assists students and parents in better utilizing their own resources and in facilitating the use of community agencies; the Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant works with students and teachers in supporting those experiencing academic difficulties. Although the Child Study Team’s major thrust is the special education community, our team, by virtue of commitment and dedication, provides a great deal of energy to the general education population as well. The team is child centered and responsive to the needs of students, staff and community.
