Communication Behavior Classrooms
These classrooms serve students who have significant socialization, behavioral, and sometimes developmental needs related to communication and sensory challenges. Academic instruction is provided at students’ instructional levels. Students have access to supplemental curriculum in social skills, behavioral training, cooperative play and communication skills. Students learn strategies to address their communication, behavior, and sensory needs. Related services and assistive technology are integrated throughout the school day consistent with each student’s IEP. Students have the opportunity to participate in general education experiences.
Communication Behavior Team Classrooms
This program serves students who are included in general education classes with the intensive supports of a team that includes a special education teacher, a speech-language pathologist and paraeducators with expertise in communication/behavioral needs. The CB Team supports students in general education and provides small group specialized instruction and support in organization skills, social skills and conflict resolution. Related services and assistive technology are integrated throughout the school day consistent with each student’s IEP.
IEP teams determine current type of educational placement (OAR 581-015-2250). Once the IEP team determines the type of educational placement, a location (or school site) is selected for the student. Selection of a school site is an administrative decision.
