About the Special Services Department
We provide a wide variety of services to students with disabilities. Our programs include instruction in self contained special education classrooms, resource rooms and general education classrooms. Self contained classes provide intensive instruction and support according to individual student needs. Resource rooms provide replacement instruction in small group settings. In-class support is a collaborative teaching model utilizing the expertise of both general education and special teachers. The district also provides speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling as related as described in the Individual Education Plan.
All parents and caregivers are encouraged to attend the Little Silver Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meetings, facilitated by the Director of Special Services. This council is a wonderful way to “get involved” and be part of a dynamic group whose goal is to improve and support local special education efforts and programs. Typically four meetings are scheduled during the school year.
