Our Resource Team consists of our Student Services Coordinator, School Counselor, and Learning Specialists. Best practice in Special Education is to provide learning in the least restrictive environment. We begin to serve children who need additional support in classrooms, but some students receive small group or one-on-one direct service by Heilicher resource faculty.
We believe that an early intervention approach best serves our students in the early grades. If a student would benefit from additional academic or social emotional skill building, Heilicher’s resource faculty get involved.
Whether or not a student needs additional support depends on a referral process. Those who qualify for Special Education through the local school district must go to the local public school which will provide the support (Susan Lindgren Elementary School).
