Early Intervention Early intervention applies to children of school age or younger who are discovered to have or be at risk of developing a handicapping condition or other special need that may affect their development. Early intervention consists in the provision of services such children and their families for the purpose of lessening the effects of the condition. Early intervention can be remedial or preventive in nature-- remediating existing developmental problems or preventing their occurrence.
Inclusion Education In a regular inclusion setting, students with special needs are educated in regular classes for nearly all of the day, or at least half of the day. Most specialized services are provided outside a regular classroom, particularly if these services require special equipment or might be disruptive to the rest of the class. In this case, the student occasionally leaves the regular classroom to attend smaller, more intensive instructional sessions, or to receive other related service such as speech and language therapy, occupational and/or physical therapy, and social work.
Resource Room Resource room is a separate special education classroom in a regular school where some students with educational disabilities, such as specific learning disabilities, receive direct, specialized instruction as individuals or in small groups. These classrooms are staffed by special education teachers and sometimes educational assistants. The number of students in a resource room at a specific time varies from state, but generally consists of at most five students per teacher. Teachers focus on particular goals as mandated by "Individualized Education Programs" and remediate general education curriculum. Depending on individual needs, students usually attend resource rooms three to five times per week for about forty five minutes per day.
Tutoring A tutor is a helper. Tutoring is helping students improve their learning strategies in order to promote independence and empowerment. The purpose of tutoring is to help students help themselves, assisting them to become independent learners and thus no longer needing a tutor.
Gifted and Talented Gifted and talented programs are district-based and begin in either kindergarten or first grade, depending on the district or borough. Children and youth with outstanding talent who perform or show the potential for performing at remarkably high levels of accomplishment when compared with others of their age, experience, or environment
One on One Instruction Instruction that focuses on the unique needs and interests of the individual learner. Education is the development of curriculum relevant to students with widely varying needs and interests.
Home Schooling Homeschooling is a legal option in many places for parents to provide their children with a learning environment as an alternative to publicly-provided schools. Parents cite numerous reasons as motivations to home school, including better academic test results, poor public school environment, improved character/morality development, and objections to what is taught locally in public school. It is also an alternative for families living in isolated rural locations or living temporarily abroad
General Education A program of courses in the arts and sciences that provides students with a broad educational experience. Courses typically are introductory in nature and provide students with fundamental skills and knowledge in mathematics, English, arts, humanities, and physical, biological, and social sciences. General Education is taught by a general Ed teacher and students are taught with little or no services.
Hospital Instruction Limited to services as deemed necessary to provide temporary intervention as a result of physical and/or mental disability or illness. services are limited to a maximum of 18 weeks. Weeks of absences may be consecutive or intermittent.
Residential Treatment The purpose of a residential treatment center is to effect long-term internal and external changes in a very troubled child. This is achieved by creating an individualized and consistent plan for addressing problems through three different areas of influence: the classroom; clinical treatment; and the therapeutic milieu, or living environment. These three areas are tightly linked, with professionals in each area playing an important part during each child's treatment term. This is an approach which covers all the bases, allows less room for a child to slip in one area and excel in another, and keeps everyone informed of what is going on with each child every day.
