Special Education Department
The Abington School District offers an array of special education and related services for eligible students. Programs, ranging from itinerant and consultative support to full time services, are offered for students with disabilities that affect their learning. Students in learning support, emotional support, and life skills support participate in the regular education curriculum with varying degrees of support provided by the special education and regular education teachers. Special education clinics provide opportunities for students to work independently on the mastery of academic and behavioral goals. Students receiving special education services experience a full academic program in a large comprehensive junior high school with personal attention focused on each students’ unique abilities and needs.
