How We Can Help
CESA 6 consultants are available to assist in:
Several times throughout the school year every district is faced with programming for students with multiple and complex needs. The district often seeks to find an individual with recent and extensive knowledge and experience in a child’s specific disability area.
A CESA 6 consultant can assist your staff to transition the student from the hospital back to school. An evaluation will be provided of the student and assistance in developing an appropriate IEP. Communication will be coordinated with outside providers. We can also assist with in-service presentations for both students and staff.
Students who have orthopedic impairments such as cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spina bifida, etc., which adversely affect their performance in school can receive assistance from the OI consultant. This may also include: evaluation, IEP development, assistive technology information, building accessibility studies, environmental modifications and teaching strategies to accommodate the student’s physical disability.
Students who are experiencing difficulty academically, socially or behaviorally, due to a specific health impairment such as a seizure disorder, leukemia, Tourette’s Syndrome, cardiac conditions, etc. may benefit from OHI consultation. In addition to evaluation and IEP development, the OHI consultant may be able to assist in interpreting the impact of a student’s medical condition or their ability to successfully function in school. This person may serve as the liaison between education, medical and rehabilitation agencies, home and community to help ensure continuity of services.
