Physical and Health Disabilities Program (PHD)

Teachers for students with physical and health disabilities serve students birth through age 21 years old in member district schools.  

Students are primarily served through a consultative model.  The teacher works with the educational team to conduct evaluations, make recommendations for and facilitate the use of assistive technology, provide academic adaptations and modifications, advise regarding environmental adaptations and provide inservice.  

Direct services are provided as appropriate focused on assistive technology support, organizational skills and work completion.
