Special Education @ H.O.M.E Support
HISD is committed to providing equal access to the same opportunities and lessons afforded to all students during this time. Special education students will have the same access to digital tools as general education students. The digital tools available to students contain features to support student learning and may include the ability to read text to students. Additionally, specific online platforms, such as Imagine Math and Imagine Literacy, provide individualized learning pathways tailored to each student’s educational need. We recommend that your student log on to these digital tools daily. Special education students who receive their instruction in a general education setting with accommodations and in-class support should follow the general education model, as the curriculum has been designed to accommodate the needs of all students.
Parents of students who are served by specialized special education programs (i.e. Preschoolers Achieving Learning Skills – PALS, Skills for Learning and Living – SLL, Preparing Students for Independence – PSI, Structured Learning Class – SLC, Behavior Support Class – BSC, Regional Day School Program for the Deaf – RDSPD, Student Opportunities for Alternative Redirection – SOAR and 18+ Transition Programs) will be contacted by your student’s special education case manager (classroom teacher or campus department chairperson) to provide individualized support.
Support for related services and other instructional needs, such as autism and behavior, occupational therapy (OT), physical therapy (PT), assistive technology (AT), deaf and hard of hearing (AI), visually impaired (VI), adapted physical education (APE), music therapy, and counseling, will occur in a virtual setting, contingent upon need and scheduling constraints and keeping within safety guidelines.
