The Sensory and Augmentative Services department is staffed by teachers of children with vision and hearing handicaps, and by a specialist in augmented and adapted communication systems. In order to receive assistance from vision and hearing handicapped teachers, children must possess vision or hearing sensory impairments which prevent them from making adequate progress in school. The augmentative communication specialist collaborates with members of a team of professionals in the development of augmented and adapted communication systems. These communication systems help children with sensory and motor handicaps to communicate with others within the school environment and within their homes. Members of the Sensory and Augmentative Services department may be reached individually by telephone (below) or through the email address provided above.
