An early childhood pre-school program provides a language-based program to students ages 3-4 with developmental delays. A site-based program includes both students with disabilities and typically developing students. Several community-based programs are also utilized to accommodate the needs of students.


Resource programs provide direct services to students with disabilities. These programs are provided within the regular classroom and, when deemed appropriate by the Special Education Team, in a resource room setting. Consultation to the classrooms teachers is also available.


The Behavior Team provides consultative support to classroom teachers to develop and implement positive behavior intervention plans.


Direct services and consultation is provided to support students who need instruction in speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling. Diagnostic testing is also available. When warranted, services are contracted in the areas of visual impairments, deaf and hard-of-hearing, assistive technology, transportation, and intensive therapy.
