Special Education

special_ed.jpgThe Morse School offers an array of special education services. Services include: occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, physical therapy, academic strategies support, counseling, and assistive technology. The goal of these services is to help students to access the general education curriculum. In order for students to access special education services, they must be referred for formal assessments, evaluated and if eligible, an Individualized Educational Program (IEP) will be developed with the input of all team members. Parents are an integral part of this process as they must consent to the assessment process and an Individual Educational Program before special education services may be provided.

The students are included with their general education peers to the maximum amount possible as deemed appropriate by the IEP team.

The following service providers may be part of a student’s Special Education Team: Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Speech and Language Therapist, Behavior Specialist, Assistive Technology Specialist, School Adjustment Counselor, Special Educators, and School Psychologist/Team Chairperson.
