Brooklyn Collegiate Special Education Department
As a special education department it is our mission to prepare each student to be a contributing member of society and to participate successfully in our local, as well as the global community. We direct students to achieve academic skills while at the same time facilitate their social and emotional development, with a goal of becoming lifelong learners.
We educate our students in a school setting where everyone belongs and is accepted. We attempt to educate students with special education needs in the least restrictive (inclusive education) environment. Our primary goal is to integrate them into general education classes; however, we make modifications and provide supplementary aids and services in an effort to foster success.
