Special Education

All children are unique and learn and grow differently. At times, children need extra help in an area of their learning. This assistance allows children to learn at their greatest potential. Through various special education programs, Comstock Park Public Schools is able to give all eligible children the assistance they need to grow as learners.

Comstock Park has a cooperative agreement with Region I school districts in Kent ISD to provide necessary services for students as close to home as possible. The Comstock Park Special Education Services Department is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of students that qualify under the IDEA (Individual with Disabilities Education Act) guidelines by working as a team with general education staff and administration.

What is Special Education?
Who benefits from these services?

Special education is specially designed instruction to meet the unique educational needs of a student with a disability. This includes instruction conducted in schools, homes, and other settings.

Special education encompasses programming and services, which may include occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, school social work services, and physical therapy.  Consultative therapies from professionals with specific certifications in Autism, visual, and hearing impairments are also given consideration with developing programs for children.

Not all special education students receive every service. Services are based on the eligibility of the student, along with each student's individual needs.  Comstock Park Schools are committed to providing appropriate programming for all students.

PASE (Parent Advisory for Special Education)

PASE services are for all parents. This dynamic group provides many services to increase awareness about special education for parents. Information and training sessions help parents understand new programs and services as well as hear about special topics. Getting parents together gives them a sounding board and helps build their resource network.

Additional PASE services include:

  • Providing updates on new or revised policies and rules
  • Reviewing IEP and other special education forms
  • Assisting with transition planning as older students move into more independent living
  • Demonstrating new technology which can help children learn
  • Showing how to revise plans for behavior support
  • Providing information on additional resources and support groups

Together, PASE members help parents become knowledgeable consumers of special education, build their skills as advocates for their children and improve the working relationship with the school district.
