Carroll Hills School

Carroll Hills School provides classroom instruction for students ages 5-21 who have mental retardation along with other disabilities including speech or motor delays and behavioral difficulties. Currently, the school houses 4 school age classes: Elementary, Intermediate, Junior High/High School 1 and High School 2. The focus of these classes is not only on learning academics in a way that can be used for success in everyday life, but also on daily living skills such as money management, housekeeping, meal planning, personal care and vocational skills. Students work at community job sites once they are in the high school classes and earn regular paychecks, paying taxes just like you and I.

It is our hope to provide the students with the tools necessary to live as independently as possible as an adult. Speech, occupational and physical therapies are also key components of the school program. Carroll Hills School classes are provided in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Ohio Department of Education.

Carroll Hills Preschool

Carroll Hills Preschool offers 4 half-day preschool classes for children ages 3-5 from Carroll County. The classes are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and are designed to work with children with documented delays in speech, fine and gross motor skills, learning abilities, and/or behavioral difficulties.

In addition, slots are allotted in each classroom for children who are considered to be developing typically. This allows for integration and modeling of appropriate behaviors and skills for the age level. Here again, intervention at a young age is key to future success.
Most of the preschoolers who come to us with some type of delay leave preschool and go on to regular classes in their neighborhood schools.

Carroll Hills Early Intervention

Early Intervention (E.I.) provides services to infants and toddlers who have been diagnosed with a disability (such as Down Syndrome) or are at high risk for developmental delays due to premature births or other environmental or familial factors.

E.I. services include home visits by the Developmental Specialist, Carroll Hills Playgroup to help develop socialization skills, and parent education as well as speech, occupational and physical therapies.

Research shows that by beginning this young, a child's chance for meeting developmental milestones and achieving at grade level later in school greatly increases.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEA) requires state education agencies to conduct special education program performance determinations for all LEAs receiving IDEA funds. Each state education agency also receives an annual state-level determination from the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP).
Carroll County Board of DD's determination is Meets Requirements. This determination is primarily based on final special education program data your LEA submitted through the Education Management Information System (EMIS) for the 2011-2012 school year.
