Our goal is to create an education team that involves the student, family, school representatives and Spectrum staff to meet the special needs of each student.
We work closely with school districts to facilitate each student referral as quickly as possible. We also collaborate to provide support as families and districts plan for referral and enrollment through the school district.
If you are interested in enrolling a student in one of our Spectrum schools of programs, we invite you to take the following steps:
Contact us. Locate a Spectrum Center or program in your area and contact the director about possible options for the student.
Visit a center or classroom. Meet the staff, tour the facility and discuss how we can customize our programs and services to meet the unique needs of the student. Before the student enrolls in Spectrum, an academic skills assessment is performed to develop the student’s individual education program (IEP).
Make your decision. Both the parents and school district administrators decide whether to enroll a student in Spectrum based on the plans developed through the IEP process.
Enroll the student. Once the decision has been made to enroll the student, we facilitate placement quickly, usually within a week of referral.
If you would like more information about enrolling a student with special needs, please contact the Spectrum location of your choice.
