Characteristics of Students
Students receiving resource services have met the state criteria for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD), Emotional/Behavioral Disorder (E/BD), Other Health Impaired (OHI), Physically Impaired (PI), or Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). Depending on their area of need, students may receive support in reading, writing, mathematics, organization, social, behavior, and/or functional skills.
Special education teachers work with students collaboratively in the general education setting and/or in a resource room in a small-group instructional setting.
Curriculum is based on each student's Individual Education Program (IEP) goals. Students are learning skills and strategies that will increase their ability to be successful in the general education environment. Choices of materials will be based on individual student need.
