Special Education

The Resource program at Cynthia Heights serves students in grades K-5. Our program serves several disability areas, including but not limited to: Learning Disabilities, Mild Mentally Handicapped, Emotional Disability, Other Health Impairment, Autism and Autism Spectrum Disorders.

All students are provided work as stated in their IEP (Individual Education Plan) and progress is updated every nine weeks via progress reports.

Students are assigned a homeroom teacher and participate in all homeroom activities, including Related Arts. Classes are divided among two teachers. The Primary Resource teacher provides special education services to students in grades K-3, and the Intermediate Resource teacher provides services to students in grades 4-5. Both classrooms emphasize a “hands on” learning approach. Multiple teacher strategies are used to address different learning modalities.

Resource teachers work very closely with homeroom teachers to ensure student progress, modify work, and provide oral testing as needed. Cynthia Heights’ team attitude makes learning a great experience for all students!
