Special Ed

At Tarver we believe the educational needs of each child are as unique as they are. Tarver Elementary has a dedicated group of professionals that assist students with individualized education programs (IEP’s) throughout Tarver.  We offer a continuum of services to meet the unique needs of our students. A team of professionals work collaboratively with classroom teachers and staff to monitor, assess and provide a range of services to meet each student’s individualized needs.  

The special education team is comprised of Learning Specialists, an Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, a Speech/Language Pathologist, School Social Worker, School Psychologist, and a Significant Support Needs Teacher. The special education team meets weekly to discuss students and meet with parents.  If you would like more information regarding special education please visit Adams 12 Five Star School’s Student Support Services page.
