Services for Special Needs Students


A variety of therapies are offered at Coralwood. Physical, occupational, speech/language, recreational, vision and mobility therapies are provided to students who qualify for services. All students participate in the motor and music classes provided as part of the curriculum. A social worker is available to work with families and students as needed. Due to the number of students with medical issues, nursing services are provided on a full-time basis at Coralwood.
