You found us…:  You found us… Special Education Services Of Ganado Unified School District #20 Our Mission Statement :  The mission of the Ganado Special Education Services in partnership with the community and schools, is to provide services to students with disabilities, to prepare them to be functional and productive citizens through direct and indirect services, social-interpersonal opportunities, and by providing academic, communication, physical, occupational, vision, and hearing therapies. We work with the regular education teachers and support the students in the regular education classroom as much as possible. Some of the Itinerate therapists (Speech/Language, Physical therapist, Occupational therapist, Vision and Audiologist) take the students out of their classes to provide direct services. These therapists also work with the general education as well as the special education teachers in providing activities to carry over the therapists program during the week. They also work with the teachers to modify and adapt various activities. The general education curriculum is used as much as possible to develop programs to enhance the student’s strengths and work on their weaknesses. Our goal is to help the students to become as functional as possible and prepare them to productive citizens. We are working to increase our transition program and assist the parents with the next step after graduation. We have implemented several new processes to support the Re-Authorization of IDEA ’97 (Special Education Law). Our forms and processes are consistent within the schools per state guidelines. Our Mission Statement Mission Statement What’s New?:  What is Special Education? Special Education is the provision of resource services in math, spelling, reading, as well as providing related services such as psychology, physical, speech & language, occupational services to students depending on their individual needs. When is Special Education appropriate for my child? When he/she has a diagnosis that impacts his/her ability to learn or function in one or more areas such as; academic, physical, mental, speech, or emotional. How do I find out if Special Education services is right for my child? When a student is not progressing academically, the teacher will begin the Teachers Helping Other Teachers (THOT) process. Once teacher interventions have been exhausted, the THOT/MET team will meet to discuss possible testing for your child. What’s New?
