Special Education (LASE)

Word of Life Lutheran School is pleased to provide special education services to qualifying students in partnership with LASE Specialized Education (LASE). Certified special education teachers provide academic support in specific subjects, organizational scaffolding, and test-taking guidance, in addition to providing classroom assistance to general education teachers and consultation services to parents. A social skills group is also available for students who need to practice skills in a small group setting. Assistive technology is utilized whenever appropriate to provide necessary accommodations and modifications to the curriculum. Qualifying students are those who are, or are at risk of, struggling in the classroom. LASE teachers will help parents access the public school system as necessary to obtain a diagnosis. All students qualifying for LASE services receive an Individualized Education Plan (IEP), 504 plan, or other appropriate service plan. LASE services allow students with learning disabilities, ADHD, high-functioning autism, Down Syndrome, etc. to achieve their academic potential and to grow spiritually and socially in a Christ-centered environment at Word of Life.
