Special education directors prepare, present for review, and implement in-service programs for school staff. They interpret special education regulations to formulate policies and procedures for special education programs, implementing procedural safeguards to ensure compliance. Special education directors are responsible for analyzing and synthesizing assessment results to make recommendations for instructional improvements and adjustments to special education plans.
Special education teachers administer standardized ability and achievement tests, and interpret results to determine students’ strengths and areas of need. They modify the general education curriculum for special-needs students, based on a variety of instructional techniques and technologies. Special education teachers employ strategies and techniques during instruction to improve the development of sensory-and perceptual-motor skills, language, cognition, and memory. They confer with parents, administrators, testing specialists, social workers, and other professionals to develop individual education plans designed to promote students’ educational, physical, and social development.
Speech/language therapy is provided by a licensed speech/language pathologist (SLP) to address the needs of students with communication disabilities, such as impairments in language, speech, and voice. Typically, the SLP will screen, identify, assess, and diagnose disorders of language, articulation, fluency, voice, and oral-pharyngeal function and provide speech and language services for the habilitation or prevention of communication disorders. Services are provided within the classroom or in individual/small group therapy sessions as specified by the IEP.
School social workers provide a link between home, school and community. This service enables students and their families to overcome social and personal problems that impede learning. School social workers provide individual and group counseling, consultation to teachers, and other services that help a student cope with their disabilities. They collaborate with community agencies and provide case management for students and their families requiring multiple services.
