      The Special Education Department of Kelly Walsh High School works with students ages 14-21 to develop academic skills and readiness for adult living. Currently, our department consists of nine full time special education teachers, one full time diagnostician, and one full time social worker. In addition, we have numerous therapists who work in the areas of vision, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech, assistive technology, Adaptive PE, vision, and hearing impairments serving our students. We also have 29 teaching assistants who work with students throughout the curriculum to meet the unique learning needs of our students. All students served through the Special Education program have an active Individualized Education Plan or IEP. These plans are developed by collaborative teams and determine the courses and accommodations needed for student success. Based on the IEP team process, students are recommended for placement in various programs. The most amazing thing about the KW Spec. Ed Dept. is the effort to provide a variety of services to support student achievement. We provide many different levels of assistance to students, from personal assistance on a pretty involved level to general case management with interventions on an "as-needed" basis. The purpose of the program is to enable students to learn in the least restrictive environment. We believe students should learn in the same environment with their non-disabled peers. Our strength lies in learning and teaching so students can experience the best of all worlds: students accepting students, and teachers working together to meet the needs of all students.
