During a ceremony filled with applause and tears, 10 Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) students were recognized for their successes during a ceremony yesterday at SCOE’s Conference Center. The event honored young adults participating in SCOE’s special education programs.
These students represent SCOE programs throughout Sacramento County, including a class at California State University, Sacramento. Many students have participated in SCOE special education programs throughout their educational years, starting in SCOE’s Infant Development Program and continuing through young adulthood.
Part of the SCOE Special Education Department, the programs for students with severe disabilities and students who need intensive social-emotional support provide services to students ranging from ages 3–22. SCOE supports many students, including those with visual impairments, mobility needs, or speech and language impairments. SCOE’s Infant Development Program provides individualized, home-based instruction and family support for infants and toddlers with special needs. Programs are offered at over 35 school sites in school districts throughout the county. Special education services are also provided at schools in facilities operated by Sacramento County Probation.
