The APE team adapts, modifies, and/or changes a physical activity so it is as appropriate for the person with a disability as it is for a person without a disability. The goal is to have an activity where ALL students can fully participate in physical education. The adaptations include needed changes in equipment (i.e. larger goal/targets, scoops instead of gloves for catching), changes in rules/prompts/clues (i.e. batting from a stationary position, partner assisted), changes in time by varying tempo, or slowing activity pace, change in physical actions (i.e. loco-motor patterns, body positions). The Director regularly visits schools and organizes events to assist both PE teachers and general classroom teachers with methodologies to adapt sports and activities in accordance with a student’s IEP requirements.

STEM education involves the study of science and mathematics, and the meaningful integration of technology and engineering to provide opportunities for innovative problem solving. Using the engineering design process, students identify problems, develop and test possible solutions, and ultimately reach a solution. The integration of mathematics, science, and engineering practices used in conjunction with digital literacy will help students recognize and utilize the variety of perspectives that may be tapped into to help unravel complex inquiries.

  • Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a district-wide initiative with an established team devoted to this work. Over the last 4 years the team has worked with target schools on a structured program to improve their UDL practices.

The OTE team’s work with teachers focuses on developing pedagogical skills which:

  • Promote academic access and achievement for all students;
  • Strengthen content knowledge and planned instruction that ensures growth and achievement for all students;
  • Design instruction that intellectually engages and challenges students towards meeting or exceeding their IEP and instructional learning goals;
  • Create dynamic learning environments that promote postsecondary readiness;
  • Use multiple measures to assess and analyze student growth, evaluate instructional effectiveness, and adjust instruction;
  • Analyze student work and provide effective feedback; and
  • Inform goals based on reflective practice and strive for continuous professional growth.

The Office of Transition supports schools in reaching out to local business owners to establish and expand work-based learning opportunities. Schools are also assisted with setting up school based enterprises and/or creating individualized jobs per students’ needs and interests. The expected outcomes include diverse work based learning opportunities that will match students’ post school interest and goals and increase work and life skills competencies. In an effort to prepare our students for post school success in the areas of Education/Training, Employment and Independent Living, students receive instruction in work readiness and life skills. Additionally, students are assessed using evaluations (similar to job performance evaluations) that measure job skill acquisition and generalization to the “real world.” The transition team researches and provides various work readiness and life skills curricula and activities to schools appropriate for their students’ needs and cognitive levels of functioning. Assistance is also provided with aligning curricula, activities and competencies/skills to NYS Career Development & Occupational Studies Standards (CDOS).

Research has linked the ability to travel independently and the availability of public transportation to positive employment and independently living outcomes for persons with disabilities for many years. The OTT team engages in continuous outreach activities to schools, families, and agencies to explain the essential nature of independent mobility and to encourage the use of mass transit for school, home, and agency planned activities.

The OTT established collaborative relationships with the NYC Department of Transportation's Safety Education Department, the NYC Transit Museum, and NYC Transit to introduce pedestrian safety skills, orientation to NYC city buses, and basic skills for using subways to our students and their teachers and paraprofessionals. OTT staff provides:

  • Introductory classes to the students in their schools, and then either visits Safety City, the Transit Museum, or hosts a NYC bus demonstration at the school. It is hoped that the outcome will be increased student awareness of safety skills for pedestrians and public transit users, and increased teacher/paraprofessional comfort with using public transportation and with engaging in more independent community walks and activities;
  • Technical assistance/consultation and professional development, workshops for parents, and the unique one-to-one comprehensive travel training services for high school age students with disabilities other than blindness, are offered to District 75 schools and community high schools; and

They may teach Braille and will also consult with teachers, therapists and parents to ensure the child reaches his or her highest level of independence.
  • Orientation and Mobility instruction enables students who are blind or have low vision to learn safe and purposeful travel. This educational service is designed to improve the student’s grasp of spatial and environmental concepts and use of information received by the senses for negotiating travel. Low vision aids and/or the use of the long cane to supplement visual travel skills for navigating the environment are also taught.

Adaptive Equipment:

  • Often students with orthopedic and health impairments are unable to access the physical environment of their school or classroom and require specialized assistance in the form of adaptive equipment. This equipment enables the student to sit at a table with peers using a specialized chair for needed support or a stander or gait trainer for weight baring or assistance in walking.


  • Students with disabilities are able to be appropriately instructed as a result of the special education program designed to meet their instructional and related service needs. However, there are some students who as a result of their disability may require additional support and that can be offered through the use of a one to one paraprofessional. The training and support provided by a one to one paraprofessional can help the student understand his/her disability and learn and provide effective strategies to help support the student’s Individualized education program. These following service is provided by one to one paraprofessionals:
    • Health Services: the need for health service must indicate the nature of the service to be provided.
