Multiply Disabled Programs: 12:1:4 classes

Our 12:1:4 Special class programs provide educational programming and related services within the classroom utilizing a trans disciplinary approach for Multiply Disabled students. This trans disciplinary model is characterized as a sharing, or transferring of information and skills across traditional disciplinary boundaries (education, speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and counseling), thereby unifying the various teaching approaches and providing an optimal learning environment for each child.

The trans disciplinary approach assists students with severe disabilities in maximizing their learning. The Speech Therapist, Occupational Therapist and the Physical Therapist spend portions of their day in the classroom working with children and consulting with the special education teacher and teaching assistants. The Teacher of the Visually Impaired and the Teacher of the Hearing Impaired both consult as needed in the classroom for specific children.

The Rome City School District offers three 12:1:4 special class programs for student’s ages 5-21. Denti School houses our Elementary classroom. Students transition to Strough for their Middle School years. RFA houses the high school program. In the high school, students are offered a Community Based Occupational Program at BOCES for a half-day and are able to engage in classes designed for their needs. The School to Work half-day program is also a half-day option for students. Most students in this class are eligible for the alternate assessment.
