The Good Shepherd Catholic Montessori is a private provider for students in Ohio’s Jon Peterson Scholarship Program. This program, administered by the Ohio Department of Education, serves students who have an IEP for a learning disability, speech disability, other health impairment, or autism. Scholarship funds are used to provide services for the student at school.
A state-certified Intervention Specialist (IS) oversees the development and management of each student’s IEP. Services available include: speech/language therapy, pull-out or push-in interventions, classroom interventions, Orton-Gillingham tutoring, and aide services.
The student’s IEP is reviewed each year and yearly goals are determined in coordination with parents, teacher, and Intervention Specialist. Quarterly reports of a student’s progress are sent to parents. Every three years the ETR/MFE is conducted to determine if the child is still eligible for services.
