Supporting Students: Meeting SDA High Physical Needs

Students with high physical support requirements in their daily lives require specialized support when attending school. The School District of Anywhere offers assistance to these students in the form of Individualized Education Programs IEPs. These plans address the specific requirements of each student and how the school can best support them.

The SDA recognizes that students with high physical support requirements may need extra support to move around the school, especially if their mobility is limited. To support students’ mobility, SDA provides special transportation accommodations, including special buses with ramps and additional support equipment.

The SDA also has dedicated staff who specialize in providing physical support, such as health aides, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists. Additionally, there are assistive technologies available to support students’ classroom participation, including devices that magnify text, convert it to audio, or provide access to a computer.

The SDA knows that parents and families play a significant role in the success of these students. As a result, they engage in open communication with them and provide opportunities for parents to engage with their child’s school life. The SDA also collaborates with other organizations that support students with high physical needs. These partnerships help provide additional resources and support to students, families, and educators.
