Special Education Programs

Continuum of Service Options

The Special Education program in the Issaquah School District serves students from birth through twenty-one years of age. Children birth through two years of age are served through contracts with community agencies. Instructional and support services are delivered by special education teachers, school psychologists, speech language pathologists, behavior specialists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and paraprofessionals. In compliance with federal and state law, students with disabilities are served in the least restrictive environment to the maximum extent possible. All special education students at all district schools participate as appropriate in general education classrooms. Special education services include individualized specially-designed instruction in academic skills, adaptive skills (self help; self advocacy, community, independent living etc.), communication and language skills, motor skills, social skills, behavior and vocational skills. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed at least annually for each student served in special education, and goals and objectives (where appropriate) are written based upon formal and informal assessments and on-going data.
