Student Support Services

About Us

Clarkston Community Schools offers a full continuum of special education programs and services for students birth through age 26. Our Student Support Services department consists of a large team of professionals including special education teachers, speech-language pathologists, social workers, psychologists, occupational and physical therapists, and paraeducators. We value our on-going partnership with parents and collaborate closely to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) for students who are eligible for special education.

We provide programs and services for students with a wide range of disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cognitive Impairment, Emotional Impairment, and Specific Learning Disability. For more information regarding Specific Learning Disability and the use of a Pattern of Strengths and Weaknesses process that we use to determine eligibility, please click here.
