The Physical Disabilities Program, which is located in the division of Prekindergarten, Special Programs and Related Services within the Office of Special Education Services, has four major functions:
Create inclusive and accessible learning environments that empower each student
to succeed in their education, career, and valued adult life roles.
MISSION: We are a
large, diverse and connected community of education and healthcare
professionals. We deliver assistive technology consultation, occupational
therapy and physical therapy to promote student success. We apply lenses
of equity, universal design for learning, and evidenced-based practice to
capitalize on each student’s and family’s unique strengths. We collaborate with
school teams to consider the whole child and develop innovative solutions to
remove physical and learning barriers for educational access.
All Means All. We Are Connected. We Are Connectors.
