Multiple Disabilities Support (MDS)

  • The Multiple Disabilities Support (MDS) program serves students ages 5-21 with severe and profound disabilities, cognitive deficits, physical and/ or sensory impairments from the ages of 5-21. The program focuses on developing students’ functional skills and behaviors critical for activities of daily living. Students are instructed in pre-vocational, leisure, and personal hygiene skills according to their IEPs. Communication skills are embedded in the program to assist students in working toward independence in these skills.

    Assistive Technology is accessed to increase students’ opportunities for education, social interaction, communication, visual, hearing, and mobility challenges to improve their functioning in the classroom and community.
