Services

Classroom:  There are 3 different levels of classroom services.  As students make progress towards goals and classroom behavior, they are transitioned to a higher level classroom.  Some of the key behaviors we monitor for classroom changes include:  Attention, Participation, Behavior, and Receptive Communication (understanding language).  As students progress through each level, they are expected to improve in these areas and show more independence in learing.

Speech and Language Services:  Services for children with delays in Receptive Language (understanding of language) and/or Expressive Language (child's ability to produce speech).  Children are assessed using standardized assessments by a Speech and Language Pathologist to help the IEP team determine eligibility.  Communication services may be delivered by the Speech and Language Pathologist, by the Classroom Teacher or Para-Educators, or by the Speech and Language Para-Educator.

Motor Services:  Fine Motor:  Children who have delays in their small muscle movements.  Children are assessed using standardized assessments by an Occupational Therapist to help the IEP team determine eligibility.  Motor services may be delivered by the Classroom Teacher or Para-Educators, or by the Motor Para-Educator under the direction of the Occupational Therapist.
Gross Motor:  Children with delays in their large muscle movements.  Children are assessed using standardized assessments by the district Physical Therapist to help the IEP team determine eligibility.  Motor services may be delivered by the Classroom Teacher or Para-Educators, or by the Motor Para-Educator under the direction of the Physical Therapist.

Behavioral Services:  Behavior Services are provided for children with delays in Social and/or Emotional Development.  Children are assessed using standardized assessments and behavioral observations by a Special Education Teacher to help the IEP team determine eligibility.  Behavioral services are provided within the classroom environment by the Special Education Teacher and Para-Educators.

Vision and/or Hearing Services:  Services for children with Vision and/or Hearing impairments.  Children are assessed by USDB (Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind) Staff to help the IEP team determine eligibility.  Services are provided by USDB Staff. 

Transportation:  Transportation may be provided to students attending the classroom sessions if parents are unable to transport the child to and from school.
