Special education programs are designed for those students who are mentally, physically, socially and/or emotionally delayed. This aspect of “delay,” broadly categorized as a developmental delay, signify an aspect of the child’s overall development (physical, cognitive, scholastic skills) which place them behind their peers. Due to these special requirements, students’ needs cannot be met within the traditional classroom environment. Special education programs and services adapt content, teaching methodology and delivery instruction to meet the appropriate needs of each child.
Individual Educational Plans (IEP) are developed to meet the requirements of each child. Infrastructures are modified to adapt to each child’s needs. Children who are unable to write are taught to use assistive devices. Potential students are integrated into kindergarten and regular schools.
