Welcome to the Special Education Page!

  • Remsen Central School provides student services and has a Special Education Department that offers a variety of programs and services as mandated by the New York State Department of Education which includes the following areas: occupational therapy, physical therapy, psychological services, social work services and counseling, as well as speech and language therapy. These services are available to students experiencing academic and/or school adjustment difficulties. These services are not intended to replace supports from a community agency or private practitioner services needed for clinical diagnosis and/or long term counseling. Special Education instruction is provided in a range from Consultant Teacher Services/ Co-Teaching to Self contained Special Education Classroom Instruction for students qualifying for such services. 

    Referrals to Student Services and Special Education are made through each building's School Based Instructional Support Team. Parents who are concerned about their child's school progress are encouraged to contact the Child's teacher.
