Low-incidence disabilities: Sensory, Developmental, and /or Multiple/ Severe Disabilities

Special education teachers who work with students who have more significant cognitive or physical needs often work in a self-contained classroom with the support of a teaching assistant. Low-incidence classrooms typically serve students who are working on communication, basic literacy, and functional skills for daily life. While the general course study is used to guide curriculum, the curriculum is often subject to modifications (as opposed to adaptations) in order to merge standard objectives with functional skills.
