Special Needs Program

Cleary School provides services for children with additional challenges to their hearing loss. Our special education programs provide services for children with learning disabilities, developmental delays, ortho- pedic impairments, visual impairments, autism and multiple disabilities. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed for each child, designed to meet the academic, social and emotional needs of the individual student. The program is designed to prepare our students for future independence.
