Can anyone tell me about programs for a child who has speech and social delays along with sensory issues. We may move to Smithtown school district and my 5 yr. old son is going into kindergarten. Currently he will be entering a self-contained class while mainstreaming into other classes for specials. What does Smithtown offer?

I don't know specifics, but I grew up going to the Smithtown school district not too long ago (graduated in '02) and was in special ed. They helped me a lot. My mom said I wouldn't have been this successful in life if it weren't for all of Smithtown's help. From what I hear, they offer a lot more than other schools.

Happen to be a teacher in smithtown, while not special ed certified I'd be happy to try to answer your question. Smithtown offers a varieity of settings for a self contained student with delays such as your sons.... I am assuming that he is entering a 12:1:1 class. The OT that works with that class is well versed in sensory issues. The teachers are willing to do whatever it takes as well. Of course, they will also provide any services stated in the IEP. In addition, smithtown's K self contained class participates in many event with the regular K classes in the building. Hope this answers some of your questions. Good Luck.
