Special Education

The Assabet Valley Special Education Department is dedicated to helping students access the general education curriculum and addressing individual needs. 

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 address specific students' needs by a staff of guidance counselors, adjustment counselors, school psychologists, and speech and language therapists.
