SupportEd (Special Education) Learners
Each learner at SelfDesign has a unique learning plan created through collaboration with the learner, the family, and the learning consultant. For learners in the SE Program, an Individual Education Plan (IEP) is created above and beyond the learning plan to provide specialized support in the areas of need.
