    The Special Education Department of Herricks Middle School seeks to meet the needs of students with disabilities within the context of a diverse community of learners.  The philosophy of the department is to meet the individual needs of all learners in an environment that affords students the opportunity to achieve academic and social success.

    Goal # 1: To improve the development of learning skills through remedial instruction

    Goal # 2: To facilitate achievement through the development of compensatory strategies

    The Herricks Middle School's Special Education / Reading Department coordinates the provision of services for students with special needs. Our school offers a full continuum of services for classified students including Consultant Teachers Services, Resource Room Services, Inclusion: Co-teaching Classes, Self-contained Individual Development Classes, and a Life Skills Class for developmentally delayed youngsters. In addition, our department arranges remedial reading services for students who score 1 or 2 on the New York State Education Department's English Language Arts Exam.
