Special Education Services

What are Related Services?

Related services are developmental, corrective and other support services required to assist a student with a disability to benefit from instruction. Based upon a student's Individualized Educational Program (IEP), related support services may be necessary.

Speech, Vision & Hearing

Speech/Language therapy is provided by teachers of speech improvement. Educational Vision Services (EVS) are provided for students who are blind or have a visual impairment related to pathology of the eyes or visual pathways. Hearing education services are designed to provide intensive instruction in speech reading, auditory training and language development to enhance the growth of receptive/expressive communication skills.
