Young children, ages 3-5, with severe delays in language, motor, cognitive, or adaptive development can receive a free and appropriate education in our preschool program.
Services, which include assessment, instruction, and evaluation, are also provided for students who qualify under federal and state guidelines, ages five to twenty-two (and have not graduated from high school).
In order to receive special education services, a student's disability must interfere with their ability to benefit from education without specialized instruction.A student whose disability does not need specialized instruction to benefit from education but could appropriately utilize specific interventions could possibly qualify for accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act, Section 504. These services are provided in all our district schools and are available for anyone who resides within our district boundaries.
If you know of anyone who might qualify and would be interested in taking advantage of these special services or if you have any questions about any of these programs, contact Jane Golightly at Wasatch School District Offices, 654-0280.
