Exceptional Education
The Exceptional Education Department at REMS provides specialized academic, speech, occupational therapy, and behavioral instruction to students who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP). If you are concerned that your child may have a learning disability or speech disorder, please contact the classroom teacher to ask for an initial referral to our Student Study Team (SST) to begin the process. 
Specific services are dependent upon areas of weakness.
We currently provide services through the pullout resource model where students visit the resource classroom every day as determined by the IEP team. During these classroom sessions, students work on their IEP goals written specifically for their areas of weakness. Most often, the skills taught are in basic reading/writing, math/number sense, and overall school success/behavior. Below are a few examples of common skills taught.

Reading/Writing skills:
-letter recognition and letter sounds
-phonics blends and word decoding
-reading comprehension
-sentence/paragraph writing

Math/Number skills:
-number identification
-understanding and application of the four math operations
-understanding word problems

School Success/Behavior skills:
-understanding choices and consequences
-conflict resolution
-anger management
-self-reflection and 
goal setting
