The Therapeutic Services program provides examination and classification services that identify a student’s educational handicap and prescribe an Services Plan. A student is eligible for these services when he or she exhibits a persistent or significant physical, emotional, communication, cognitive or social problem that may be the manifestation of an educational handicap.
An interdisciplinary team that includes a learning disabilities teacher consultant, school psychologist, school social worker, and a medical doctor conduct individual diagnostic evaluations. The interdisciplinary process includes, but is not limited to, student observation, information from the student’s parent/ guardian and classroom teachers, and individual team testing. In some cases, the child study team may recommend an IEP for the student. This service also includes annual reviews and periodic evaluations of students previously classified and receiving either speech correction and/or supplementary instruction.
