Welcome to District 158’s Special Services office. Special Services offers consultative, resource, instructional and specialized programming for students who have been identified with having a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
The goal of special education and related services is to support each child and address their individual needs. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed in collaboration with parents, general education teachers, and special service staff on a yearly basis minimally.
The services provided include specialized instruction for students with learning disabilities, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, vision and hearing itinerant services, specialized instruction and supports for students with emotional/behavioral disorders, mild cognitive impairments and students with Autism.
District 158 offers a variety of specialized programming along the continuum of services to meet the diverse needs of its many students. The programs are typically campus based to allow for students to move through their specialized programming with their same age peers.
