Programs

Regular Class Modification

The regular class teacher may modify the educational program to meet the students needs. These modifications are usually the result of consultations with the parents, school psychologist, a special education teacher, and/or other members of the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team.

 

Regular Class with Related Services

A student in general education may qualify for related services.  These services are made available in small group or individual settings during the regular school day.  Related services include Speech and Language (for communication needs), Adapted Physical Education (for gross motor skills), Occupational Therapy (for fine motor skills and sensory needs), and Physical Therapy (for physically accessing educational environment).

 

Itinerant Teacher for the Hearing and Visually Impaired
Some hearing impaired and visually impaired students attend regular classes with an itinerant teacher providing support services according to the child's needs as determined in the IEP.  These services are provided for the Lawndale Elementary School District by the Los Angeles County Office of Education.

 

Learning Center Program
Educational Specialists provide instruction and services for those students whose needs have been identified in an IEP and who are assigned to the regular classroom for part of the school day. The Learning Center Program may serve students representing a variety of handicapping conditions whose educational needs can be appropriately addressed within this part-time setting.

 

Special Day Class (SDC)

Special classes are situated on regular campuses and are designed to meet the specific educational needs of students with learning, language, and adaptive skills problems. A students placed in one of these self-contained settings may be mainstreamed for one or more regular classes as appropriate.

 

Lawndale Early Advantage Preschool (LEAP)

LESD is proud to offer high quality preschool at Carson Learning Center.  This program offers unique curricula especially designed to meet the learning needs of disabled preschool students.  We also offer Speech and Language services.  If you are concerned that your child may have a disability, please contact your school of residence.
