Special Education

The Upper Perkiomen School District provides an extensive range of educational services and supports for student with special needs within our schools. These services include: Learning Support, Emotional Support, Autistic Support, and Life Skills Support. Speech/Language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, hearing support, vision therapy, and transition services are also provided to eligible students requiring these services to an educational need. A broad array of supplementary aids and services to support students’ educational needs includes communication devices, audio versions of books, assistive technology, and pre-vocational opportunities. The continuum of programs and services for children with disabilities varies in accordance with the changing needs of our community.


Glossary of Terms

The Pennsylvania Department of Education has developed a guide, Understanding the Language of Special Education, which is designed as a reference for parents. As with many specialized fields, there are terms used in special education that are unique. This guide is not a legal document and was developed to give parents and educators in Pennsylvania an understanding of the language of special education so they can more easily participate in educational decision-making. The content of the guide is broken down into the following sections: Contents Agencies, Organizations, and Programs, Disabilities and Behaviors.
