Overview of Special Education Services
The Delaware Valley School District offers a full continuum of services for students with disabilities designed to meet the needs of all students. Students attend classes in each of the seven buildings in the district as determined by student needs.
Teachers utilize modifications and adaptations to ensure effective instruction for all students that addresses the wide range of student learning styles and individual needs.
A collaborative effort is given to provide each child with effective interventions in the least restrictive environment from kindergarten through graduation. This is a comprehensive effort, involving all the people familiar with the child, including parents, school psychologists, regular and special education teachers, counselors, related service providers, administrators, outside consultants, and the student, when appropriate.
These services include:
- Learning Support
- Emotional Support
- Life Skills Support
- Autistic Support
- Deaf & Hard of Hearing Support
- Multiple Disabilities Support
- Physical Support
- Speech & Language Support
- Vision Support
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Social Work Services
Opportunities are available for students with moderate to severe disabilities to participate in the general education environment to the maximum extent possible as determined by the IEP team.
