Provide students with services in order for the student to benefit from their educational program. In some cases services include speech therapy, adapted physical education (APE), occupational therapy (OT), audio logical services, orientation and mobility instruction and vision services.
The SDC serves those students who require more than 50% of the day in a special education setting. Currently the district has SDC programs at the Elementary, Middle, and High Schools. The SDC program serves students with severe learning disabilities with instruction in core curriculum with adaptations that are based on their individual needs. When possible, students are mainstreamed. In some cases intensive behavioral interventions are implemented and, when appropriate, mental health services are provided.
Home or Hospital Instruction and services may be provided for those students whose physical condition requires confinement for prolonged periods of time (a minimum of three weeks), and who require long-term instruction at home or in the hospital. This service must be recommended by a licensed physician.
The Workability program provides service to in-school disabled youth ages 14-21, from special education classes, enrolled in local high schools who have significant barriers to employment or are at-risk or dropping out of school. The students may have physical, mental, multiple or learning disabilities. They must have an IEP and an Individual Transition Plan (ITP) which defines educational goals, career and vocational goals, independent living and personal adjustment goals. Students may be assisted in attaining employment. They must be dependable and express a desire to obtain some form of work experience. Services must coincide with school activities and academic progress and must have teacher and parent support.
Preschool programs for children age 3 years to 4 years 11 months are also available. Sonoma Valley Unified School District provides preschool services for Speech and Language (DIS) only. For other preschool services for students with more intensive needs please call Sonoma County Office of Education Infant Program (Early Start) at (707) 524-2763 or Preschool Program at (707)522-3272.
