- Students with mild disabilities receive instruction in a general education classroom with accommodations to instruction with some support from an ESE teacher. The ESE teacher teams with several general education teachers to provide varied levels and frequency of support to students and teachers.
- The ESE teacher is in general education class with the general education teacher.
Small Group/Therapy (Individual)
- Small group instruction with a therapist or ESE teacher outside the general education classroom for a portion of a day. Examples include: speech therapy, language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, orientation or mobility training.
- Instruction from ESE teachers for any subject area. Students may change classes. Modified or supplanted instruction in any area. Based upon degree of severity - academic, functional, social/emotional/behavioral.
