Special Education

The Assabet Valley Special Needs Department is dedicated to assisting each student in his or her quest to achieve his or her potential. 

Special Education teachers provide services to students based on co-teaching and consultation models. Regular education teachers and special education teachers work together to provide service in supported English and supported mathematics classes using a co-teaching model of instructional delivery.

Special education teachers provide consultation in selected science and social studies classes as well as consultation in the vocational technical programs.

General academic consultation service is provided by the student's special education liaison.

Related services are provided to meet students' needs by a staff of guidance counselors, adjustment counselors, school psychologists, and speech and language therapists.
