As a participant in the PaTTAN's Autism Initiative, the Pupil Services Department of the Colonial School District invites you to this presentation on skill sets that help encourage participation in school, home and community.
Colonial students receive a wide array of basic and supplemental services, including special education, counseling and school health programs. More than 800 students qualify for individualized education programs (IEPs) due to specific disabilities, and approximately 200 students have gifted individual education programs. Fourteen school counselors support students in grades K-12, and four community counselors offer additional supplemental services.
School health services are provided by certified school nurses and staff nurses to all Colonial students as well as students attending non-public schools within the District. Routine health services include height, weight, vision, hearing and scoliosis screenings. Dental examinations and physical examinations are also provided according to provisions of the Pennsylvania School Code.
Additional supports to students and families include the services of a home and school visitor and a behavioral health adviser.
As many as 50 vendors will be on hand to discuss supports for students with disabilities, their families and educators. November 14, 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the PWHS Cafeteria.
Students in ESY hit the ground running this school year thanks to a summer program that highlighted math and reading — and community connections.
The businesses work with Emily Prager, Special Education Transition Coordinator, to offer vocational training opportunities beyond what Colonial students learn in the classroom.
The CMS Chapter brought in more than $1,800 to support Best Buddies in the Philadelphia area.
