The school district must offer a variety of programs and services to meet the differing needs of students with disabilities. This is referred to as the continuum of services.  This continuum includes such programs as:


  • Related services – speech/language, counseling, physical therapy, occupational therapy
  • Consultant teacher – direct and/or indirect
  • Resource Room – specialized supplementary instruction
  • Integrated co-teach and co-teach consultant classes
  • Special education classes – may be either part-time or full-time
  • BOCES
  • Private day schools
  • Residential schools
  • Home/hospital instruction

The CPSE or CSE must select and recommend the components or combination of components of the continuum that meets a student’s needs in what is called the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE).  Students can receive services for either a 10 or 12 month school year, if the CSE determines eligibility for extended year services due to severe regression.
