Children with disabilities (birth to age 21) have a wide range of programs available based on their particular need. Special education services are delivered in regular classrooms, and in self-contained and resource room settings. Services are available at all schools including speech/language therapy, occupational and physical therapy, psychological assessment, and home-based instruction. Programs may be on a Mount Vernon School District site or at another educational location. Every student who receives special education must have an individual Education Program (IEP) developed by teachers, parents, and other professionals.
