Fairview Park City School District is reaching out to families in our community that may have a child with special needs. Public schools are required by Federal and State law to evaluate any child from age birth to 21 suspected to have a disability. Special education services are available through the public schools for children ages 3 through 21 identified with a disability.
If you have a child or know of a child you suspect may have a disability under the Individuals with Disabilities Improvement Act or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, please contact the Special Education Coordinator, Janice K. Price.
Evaluations and service plans are created as needed for students who are unable to attend school for a short period of time, usually due to a medical condition or injury.
Please contact your child’s School Counselor with questions.
Developmental Assistance Program (DAP)
The Developmental Assistance Program (DAP) is designed to meet the needs of preschool age students who have been identified with a special need. The program offers a developmentally appropriate curriculum within a classroom setting. The curriculum is aligned with the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards, which in turn is aligned with the Ohio Content Standards for school-age students.
In addition, students have the opportunity to participate in activities such as music, dramatic play, fine motor, gross motor, and speech & language activities.
The DAP program also offers an opportunity for students with special needs to engage with typical peers within the classroom. Each child in the DAP program that qualifies for special education services has an IEP written with goals and objectives to meet his/her individual needs.
