The pathway to higher education begins in high school when students are given the foundational blocks to success through electives, advanced mathematics and science courses and extracurricular activities that match their current interests and ready them for what is ahead in their lives. High school can be a difficult period for even the best students. Tests focus more on analytical abilities, and papers and other school projects can be long and difficult. However, the special education student will find this time even more difficult.
Helping Pasadena Students with Special Needs Succeed
Most special education students in Pasadena require extra guidance from school counselors. They may also require tutoring in one or more classes and may need to take some of their classes outside the traditional classroom. Some students also require either accommodations or modifications in the classroom in order to succeed. However, the only way to get any of these special requests is to have an IEP, and this first requires an evaluation.
