Special Education

Inclusion/Co-Teaching


“Children who learn together, learn to live together”

Inclusive education means that all students in a school, regardless of their strengths or weaknesses in any area, become part of the school community.  They are included in the feeling of belonging among other students, teachers, and support staff.

 

Co-Teaching

Co-Teaching is a service delivery model in which two (or more) educators contract to share instructional responsibility, for a single group of students, for specific content .  The federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and its 1997 amendments  make it clear that schools have a duty to  educate children with disabilities in general  education classrooms.

 

Life Skills

Life skills includes the skills the student needs to be successful in society.  The Life skills classrooms are organized around functional academic instruction and classroom routines that facilitate the development of daily living skills. The daily schedules reflect the overall activities of the school as well as the classroom’s unique activities and daily routines.

 

PPCD

The Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities (PPCD) provides educational and support services for children ages 3 to 5 with identified delays in one or more of the five developmental areas. Students are eligible for services on their third birthday. PPCD uses many activities to strengthen all domains - language, fine and gross motor, cognitive, social help, and social skills. We also use a total communication approach which includes speech, sign language and picture symbols.
