Special Education


Welcome to Billerica's Special Education Department.

The Billerica Public Schools provide services for students with special needs in accordance with the Federal Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and state (603 CMR 28.00) regulations.

Billerica Public Schools provides a continuum of special education services for students based on individual needs and Team recommendations. These services may include, but are not limited to, specially designed instruction for academics, speech/language, occupational therapy, behavior, counseling, social skills, study skills and physical therapy.

Teachers and specialists work collaboratively with parents/guardians of students identified as requiring special education services. In order to provide the highest quality education and set high expectations for our students all input from staff and parents are considered in developing programming. We always welcome teacher and parent questions and concerns.

Often parents/guardians have questions regarding:
The evaluation process
Eligibility for special education
IEP development
Services
Team process
Programming options
Transition

Students that are already receiving special education services are assigned a District Contact Person (DCP) that is identified on the student’s IEP. The contact person is always happy to address parent questions or direct you to the appropriate person to help you.

For parents wanting to learn more about the special education process, you should feel free to contact the Team Chairperson assigned to your child’s school or contact the special education office. Information regarding special education and contact information can be found on the Billerica Public Schools website at www.billericak12.com
