Special Education at Westford Academy
Special Education services at Westford Academy consist of various supports and resources that serve students with with disabilities. These services include inclusion, pull-out and sub-separate academic settings. Within these service settings students receive academic, social/emotional, speech, reading, pre-vocational, occupational therapy or physical therapy supports. Students are scheduled into Special Education classes according to their needs, as determined through the 766 team meeting process and IDEA-2004 guidelines.
The Special Education teachers and staff who work in these settings service individual students according to their educational plans. They function as academic coaches for those students who need help with homework and study skills, as teachers of basic skills for those students who need reinforcement and support in those skill areas previously taught but not yet mastered, and as counselors for those students needing emotional, as well as educational support or they provide direct services for identified areas of need.
