Special Education Teachers
Special Education Teachers focus on the instruction of students with special needs, ensuring their success in a general education program by addressing learning and communication challenges, as well as emotional, behavioral, and developmental disorders.
Our Teachers meet the highest degree of State Curriculum Content Standards by providing interventions designed to meet social and academic goals while increasing independence and self-reliance in students. Using an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) tailored to the need of each child, they provide specialized instruction and academic remediation in a variety of subjects and related assignments within an individual or group setting.
Instructional Assistants, also known as Para Professionals, are trained to assist educators in performing duties associated with a wide variety of educational services. Our professionals receive comprehensive training, and operate under the direct supervision of an experienced, credentialed teacher and/or licensed therapist.
Special Education Coordination
The field of Special Education Coordination follows federal, state, and local regulations to oversee schools’ or districts’ special education programs. This includes aiding schools with IEP and service management, meeting the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and establishing Child Find, Child Study Teams, and RtI programs as well as Title I and ESL processes. Our Special Education and Coordination team is made up of highly qualified Administrators, Resource Specialists, Para Professionals, and Case Managers that help schools meet these needs.
Administrators work with school authorities, parents, and teachers to create, manage, and implement programs tailored to a clients’ special needs populations. Our administrators assist schools with the creation of programs that are responsive to the educational needs of students who may be coping with challenges associated with being English Language Learners, of lower economic status, and or living in non-traditional or challenging structures. By determining educational standards and program goals, and setting policies and procedures for special education teachers, our administrators ensure compliance with federal, state, and local laws.
Our special education teachers, sometimes called Resource Specialists, address learning and communication challenges, as well as emotional, behavioral, and developmental disorders to assure that students with special needs can participate in a general education program. Our specialists provide interventions that are designed to increase students’ independence and self-reliance, while achieving academic goals that meet the State curriculum content standards of each school. Working within the framework of each student’s IEP, our specialists provide specialized instruction and academic remediation in a variety of subjects.
Case Managers manage your IEP planning and development process, including assistance with the development of IEP goals and objectives, monitoring of timelines, IEP meetings, assessments, and student services.
