Special Education

Elmont Elementary School offers a variety of special education programs that provide educational services for children with special needs. We provide special education services in a collaborative or resource setting as specified in each child’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

For more information regarding our special education services, please view our division site.

Welcome to Elmont Elementary School. What you do today will make a difference.Who is Eligible?

Any child, 2–21 years of age, living in the Elmont Elementary School district, who is suspected of having a learning problem, can be referred to the special education administrator. Parent(s), school staff, or other individuals can make these referrals. Upon receipt of the referral, the special education administrator will convene a meeting to discuss the referral. Participants in this meeting are individuals who are familiar with the child as well as school staff. Recommendations may be made at this time to help the child become more successful in the classroom.

If the team needs additional information, it may recommend additional testing, which we will complete within 65 calendar days. At the end of this period of time, the team will convene again to go over the test results and make recommendations. 

If the team determines a child is eligible for special education services, we will develop an Individualized Education Plan, or IEP, within 30 calendar days. The child will receive IEP services in the least restrictive environment. Recommendations for changes to a child’s IEP can be made at any time; however, the IEP must be reviewed annually.

Please direct all questions regarding special education services at Elmont Elementary to Amanda Sanders.

Speech & Language Program

The speech/language program at Elmont provides the evaluation of children who have been referred to us for articulation, language, voice, fluency, and hearing difficulties. Children are eligible for speech/language services if a problem in one or more of these areas impacts a child educationally. The speech therapist provides services as recommended by the IEP committee. We provide therapy in the school setting during the school day. We gear our services toward developing children's communication skills to help them succeed academically at school.

Parent Resource Center

The Hanover County Public Schools Department of Special Education has established the Parent Resource Center as a source of information, support, and training for parents, students, teachers, staff, and community members.

The PRC is committed to promoting working relationships between parents, educators, and the community. Our goal is to help parents gain knowledge and become comfortable with the special education process. We believe this will allow parents to partner with schools and become more involved in the planning and decision-making process for their child's education.
