Physical/Multiple Disabilities and Health Impairments

The Physical/Multiple/Health Disabilities Program is a low incidence, regional cluster site, which provides an Instructional program for students, grades PreK-8. The students in this program cannot benefit from a full regular educational classroom placement because of a severe physical disability or health impairment which interferes with mobility, safety, and/or learning. Physical disabilities and health impairments may be multiple and exists at various levels of severity. Programming may require adaptations in the structural environment and/or modified equipment and materials.

The program provides a full continuum of services from consultation to self-contained classes. Programming may address any of the following areas: academic skills, social/emotional skills, self-help skills, communication skills, pre-vocational skills, and/or mobility skills. The goal is to enable the students to function successfully in the regular education setting as much as possible with various degrees of support. It is also a goal to transfer their skills for a manner of dignified living, working, and recreation in one’s home community.
