CASE Specialized Academic Classrooms are located in member district schools and are designed to meet the individualized needs of students with disabilities. The classrooms support students that require specialized academic instruction and individualized intervention with the use of best practice strategies. Placement and support is determined by the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process and students have access to instruction in the general education setting to their fullest extent.

CASE Specialized Academic Classrooms provide high evidence-based instruction and strategies with a focus on goals and objectives to meet the IEP for each student. Instruction and goals are aligned to general education standards. Instruction is differentiated, modified, adapted and specifically designed to meet individual student’s needs. Instructional supports include: structured teaching, visual supports, life skills, social curriculum, environmental structures, modeling, individualized direct instruction, advocacy skills, transition, executive functioning, social/emotional learning.

Every classroom has technology based on the needs of the students. Most classrooms are equipped with laptops and desktops, iPads and interactive whiteboards. Assistive technology can be considered and/or implemented on an individual need basis.
