BERLIN - A booklet that explains special education in Berlin schools is available at the Board of Education offices.

“A Guide to Special Education Services in Berlin,” written by local school officials, describes how educators identify students with special needs, collaborate with parents and other professionals and provide for their programming needs.

Other issues discussed include speech and language, occupational and physical therapies, social work, psychological and guidance services.

Also included are policies for confidentiality of education records, provisions for homebound instruction and special transportation.

The guide is available on the district website at berlinschools.org.
