The Orange County Department of Education Special Schools Division, provides support for students with orthopedic impairments, multiple disabilities, and significant medical needs. Student’s instructional program infuses mobility skills and communication skills within their daily routine. Adaptive technologies are used as appropriate to assist students in communicating and accessing core curriculum, and provides further supports for visual and/or auditory needs the students may have.
The student’s IEP program is created in a collaborative setting with a student’s family, teacher, and support staff. When necessary, an Individual Healthcare Plan is developed by the School Nurse to address such student medical needs as seizure disorders, tracheotomies, and gastrostomy tube feedings.
