Exceptional Learners (Spec. Ed)



Services During COVID-19

We understand the necessity of providing each of the related services recommended on your child’s IEP. For the remainder of the COVID-19 State of Emergency, NECSD will be offering the option of related service delivery via Telepractice. 

Parents who consent for their scholars to receive related services via Telepractice are consenting for CSE service sessions to be delivered via live and synchronous video conferencing on the same Google Meet platform scholars use to receive instruction throughout the day. 

Telepractice will be offered for the related services of Speech Language Therapy, Psychological Counseling, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy. Parents who have opted their children into the hybrid model may also have their child receive related services in person during the in-person days assigned to each blue and gold cohort at the discretion of the related service provider. 

Parents who wish for their child to receive their related services via Telepractice are required to electronically sign the following Informed Consent via Google Form, which further explains more details about what is required and involved in Telepractice services.

General Information
The NECSD is dedicated to the goal of improving educational outcomes for students with disabilities and their families. Students with disabilities are identified through a referral and evaluation process as defined through the Part 200 Regulations of New York State.

Once identified, students are eligible to receive supports and services designed to provide access to the general education curriculum. As required by law, supports and services must be provided in the least restrictive environment possible in which a student can realize educational benefit.

In the event you suspect your child may be struggling academically, please contact the principal of the school your child attends and request a meeting to discuss possible interventions. Once interventions are provided and progress is appropriately monitored, a referral to the Committee on Special Education may be completed.
