The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) ensures that all children with disabilities are entitled to a free appropriate public education to meet their unique needs and prepare them for further education, employment and independent living.
In accordance with each child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), students are entitled to receive their designated supports and services as outlined in their Plan. Supports are implemented in efforts to assist students with accessing the general education environment and curriculum, and may include: school psychology, social work, speech, physical and occupational therapies, and, at times, paraprofessional support.
Due to the Coronavirus, students will receive their supports virtually, as well as face-to-face via Hazel Park’s Return to School Plans. Providers are diligent with their service delivery so as to ensure students do not miss these critical components of their Plans, while working to promote success and foster growth in alignment to their general education peers. This is their right and this is our goal!
