Orthopedically Impaired (OI)
These children are cognitively intact and have physical anomalies, such as cerebral palsy or muscular dystrophy, which may interfere with the educational process.
The Special Education teacher offers support to enable the student to function within the regular classroom setting. Assistive technology aids in work out-put (combination of low and high tech). Physical and occupational therapies are provided in the OI class. Academic support is also provided in the OI class or other programs as appropriate.
