Some students with disabilities, due to psychological or mental health issues, display serious social/emotional issues that require extra supports in order to access their educational program. These students may be in special education classes for all or part of the day, and receive other special education services as well.
The Ventura County SELPA has a well articulated continuum of options available for students with social/emotional needs. It is the goal of the SELPA to provide services to address these needs as early as possible in the least intrusive way. We believe if students have the appropriate supports provided when they are needed, we can avoid deeper problems requiring more intrusive interventions later on. It is always the goal to keep all of our students in their home community, living with their families, if at all possible.
