Special Education Services

At P.S. 112, we offer multiple services that support students with disabilities. Classroom instruction is always differentiated and modified to meet the needs of all students. Our students with Individualized Educational Programs often receive related services, which go along with their disability.

Services include:

In addition we have both monolingual and bilingual social workers and psychologists along with an IEP coordinator, to offer families the backing they request to support their children outside the school. Our team works hard to evaluate students at risk of needing support in order to ensure all students receive the intervention necessary to succeed.

School‐Based Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists employed by the NYC DOE may provide services in several educationally relevant areas in which they can help promote student success, including, but not limited to:

    • Classroom Responsibilities – activities necessary for participation in various classroom activities, including adapting to routines, organizing materials, hand skills necessary for manipulating classroom tools and producing written work

    • Functional Sensorimotor Skills/Environmental Interactions – such as staying on task while filtering distractions, interacting cooperatively and appropriately with peers and adults, following directions, observing personal space and utilizing various school equipment safely

    • Activities of Daily Living – as it relates to self‐care activities such as hygiene, toileting, feeding, managing personal materials and devices

    • Transitioning from school to post‐school activities
