Students with speech, language and hearing needs are identified through the school referral process. When a student qualifies, the school language/speech pathologists work with the identified child individually and in small groups in developmental language, auditory and speech articulation programs, and remediation of voice and fluency problems.
The Special Education Team offers primary instruction, and remediation of skill deficits through an integrated program in reading, writing, spelling, oral language and mathematics. The particular structure of the program varies to accommodate the ages and specific needs of individual students. Generally, special education instruction features very small instructional groups, individualized instruction and the implementation of highly specialized methodologies. Diagnostic services, consultation with classroom teachers, in-class support and direct instruction, are all components of the special education program.
Special education preschool children are serviced by the Early Learning Center program.
