Multi-Disabled Classes

Multi-disabled Classes: Students with more than one disability are served in a multi-disabled (MD) classroom. In addition to academic and pre-academic skills, emphasis is placed on gross motor, fine motor, communication, socialization, self-help skills and mobility. Therapeutic equipment and augmentative communication devices are used to help each student achieve his/her maximum potential. All learning is incorporated into the academics: reading, language, math, science and social studies. The academic goals are written based on individualized needs and according to the State of Alabama-Course of Study- Extended Standards for Special Education. There are eight MD classes at Children’s Center, one class at Father Purcell Exceptional Children’s Center and one at Montgomery Children’s Specialty Center. Placement in these classes is determined by a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP), considering: 1) age and grade level, 2) cognitive ability, and 3) degree of physical disability and medical fragility.
