Special Education is a service, not a place. The Mt. Lebanon School District supports the implementation of inclusive practices and supplementary aids and services needed to access the general education curriculum. Based on agreement within an IEP team, these services are brought to the child, rather than sending the child out of the general education classroom to receive special education services. Students who need more intensive services are able to access the full spectrum of special education services provided by the District.
The emotional support program is designed to meet the needs of students with social, emotional, and behavioral needs that have an adverse impact on their learning. Direct instruction in social skills is provided according to individual student need. Additionally, academic support and/or direct instruction are also able to provide as needed.
Learning support services are provided to students who demonstrate a disorder in understanding or in using language (spoken or written), listening, reading, writing, and/or mathematics. Accommodations and modifications may be provided in the general education classroom. Students who need more intensive services may receive academic support and/or direct instruction within the learning support program.
Students who demonstrate a need in the area(s) of articulation, fluency, language and pragmatic development, are able to receive school-based speech and language support. Students are scheduled for individual and/or small group sessions, according to age as well as the level of supports.
