Our Education Specialist, Mr. Negron, works with students who have a wide range of special needs and disabilities. As a specially-trained educator, he creates and applies appropriate curricula and assigns activities that are specific to each student’s abilities and needs. He also involves himself in each student’s academic, social, and behavioral development.
As our special needs educator, he assists in developing Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for each individual student. The Individualized Education Program is designed to develop individual goals for the student and is modified to the student’s abilities and needs. Our special education teacher goes over the IEP with the child’s parents, general education teachers, and school administrators. He works very closely with parents to keep them updated on progress and make recommendations to promote learning in the home.
A large part of our Education Specialists job involves communicating and coordinating with others involved in the child's well-being, including parents, social workers, school psychologists, occupational and physical therapists, school counselors, school administrators, and other teachers.
