    The aim of the Distinct program at Licton Springs is to promote students’ independence to the greatest degree possible while supporting the unique learning needs of each student. Students receiving services through the Distinct model (formally SM-4) receive a majority of their instruction in the special education setting. Distinct has a caseload ratio of one special education teacher to two instructional assistants to seven students across all elementary grades.

    Students may qualify under any of the thirteen federal mandated categories of disability. Areas of Specially Designed Instruction differ according to each individual's IEP, but they will include one or more of the following areas: Pre/Functional Academics, Reading, Written Language, Math, Social/Behavior, Adaptive/Life Skills, and Communication. Students may also receive physical therapy, occupational therapy, and/or vision services.
