The Green Ridge Elementary School Exceptional Children program provides specially designed instruction to meet the unique educational needs of children. It provides services for eligible students that will enable each to participate, to the maximum degree appropriate, with their peers in the general education program. These services are offered on a continuum of varying levels of service, depending on the needs of each student as identified in the Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
Special education and related services, which can include speech/language, occupational therapy, physical therapy, transportation, and more, are based on the unique needs of the child.
Early special education is needed to provide a foundation for future learning. Early educational treatment can reduce or eliminate the need for intensive special services later.
