Educating Students with Complex Support Needs
“Students with complex support needs are those students with disabilities who comprise about 1 – 2 % of all students. These students most often are assessed via the PASA, rather than the PSSA, and may include students who have intellectual disabilities and/or may need life skills support, multiple disabilities support, autistic support or physical support; and also may require augmentative communication systems and assistive technology in order to access, participate and progress in learning.” (PaTTAN, 2012.)
