How?

We create an Individualized Education Program (IEP), and we continually evaluate and address each student’s unique needs.

Who?

By working with parents, students, staff and the community, we provide services in accordance with IEPs for our students, age 2 through 21.

Where?

Students in our programs learn in an environment that meets their needs academically, socially and behaviorally. It may be a general education classroom, special education classroom, or a combination of environments.

We help students and parents through the special education process using a team approach. We make every effort to include parents/guardians and we value their input. We also include the student when appropriate. The team includes highly qualified specialists with expertise in special education.

Our services and resources are designed to help individuals with a variety of disabilities. Disabilities may include, but are not limited to:

  • Autism
  • Deafness
  • Deaf-blindness
  • Developmental delay
  • Hearing impairment including deafness
  • Intellectual disabilities
  • Multiple disabilities
  • Orthopedic impairment
  • Other health impairment
  • Specific learning disability
  • Speech and language impairment
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Visual Impairment including blindness
