PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM
Regional programs work in collaboration with Local School Districts, Early Intervention, Early Childhood Special Education (EI/ECSE) programs, Families, and Community Agencies to provide specialized educational support for children with hearing impairments, vision impairments, autism spectrum disorders, severe orthopedic impairments, deaf-blindness, and traumatic brain injury. These are known as l
, occurring in the general population at such a low rate that it is difficult for individual districts to employ specialized staff and provide a full range of related services needed for these students. Providing these services on a regional basis is both cost effective and assures that the students receive programs and services from qualified staff related to their specific needs.
INFORMATION ON THE CHILDREN SERVED
The children, birth-to-21, who as a result of their low-incidence disability require specialized services, are eligible for support from the Regional Programs. The primary responsibility for a child always remains with the local school district. Regional Programs work closely with local district, Individualized Education Program (IEP) teams, Early Childhood Special Education EI/ECSE, and Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP) teams to identify and provide appropriate services.
