Multiple Disabilities Support
All students in the MDS classrooms are encouraged to be independent. Students are given lots of hands-on opportunities for learning and practice.
AT (Assistive Technology) is an essential need for many children with multiple disabilities that is taught and used. Computers, augmentative/alternative communication systems, communication boards, head sticks, and adaptive switches are just some examples of helpful AT that is used at Clairview School.
Many related services are part of the daily classroom routine. Related services may include speech-language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, or orientation and mobility services. When possible, these services are provided in the classroom during the natural routine of the school day, although some may be provided in other settings.
