Special Education Overview

Special Education
The elementary schools provide services for students with special learning needs. The speech and language program offers a continuum of services to children whose oral communication difficulties are impacting their academic progress. These services are based on the results of speech and language testing and team consultation with the child’s teacher and parents. We provide services for students with learning disabilities as well. Support is available in the form of direct intervention, consultation with teachers and parents, and monitoring of performance in the classroom.

Occupational Therapy is a related service that is provided for students after there has been a determination of an educational need. The occupational therapist utilizes movement and various manipulative and play activities to facilitate developmental skills that serve as foundations for classroom learning.

Preschool Special Education provides services to children three to five years old, who have been referred to the Hopkinton Preschool Team. Referrals for services may be made by the parent/guardian or teachers by contacting Harold Martin Preschool at 746-3473. The Preschool Team meets to consider the referral. If the team decides that more information is needed, an evaluation is completed. If the evaluation demonstrates that the child needs special education services, an appropriate program is developed to meet the child’s needs.

The Hopkinton PTA does multiple events throughout the year.  As we prepare and run these events, there is a lot of behind the scenes work to be done.  We are hoping that for the 2017/2018 school year, we can create a list of volunteers to help with these jobs to lighten the very heavy load that has fallen upon our board members.  Please sign up using the following link:www.signupgenius.com/go/...
