The Special Education team at Foothill Elementary includes resource
teachers, a speech language pathologist, a school psychologist, an
occupational therapist and a physical therapist.These teachers
and therapists support students who have an Individual Education Plan
(IEP). The IEP is a formal plan that is developed after assessments
indicate that a student is substantially below grade level in an
academic domain (literacy or math) or has a recognized disability that
interferes with accessing the general education curriculum (e.g. visual
or hearing impairment, autism, motor disability, speech or language
disorder or social/emotional disorder). The services for students might
be delivered individually, in small groups or in the general education
classroom depending on the needs of the student.
The Intensive Learning Center (ILC) at Foothill Elementary is a
Significant Support Needs Program. Students in the ILC Program receive
additional interventions and support for academic, social, emotional and
health needs in the general education and special education classrooms.
