Director of Special Education's Message

Mrs. Vedia Page

August 2017

Welcome to the 2017 – 2018 school year! Our theme this year is “Educating the Whole Child One Step at a Time”.  The educational and social emotional needs of the students are a high priority.  I am committed to working with students and families.  It is with great honor and humility that I serve as the Director of Special Education for Dolton School District 149.

We offer a continuum of special education services to children with disabilities.  The Special Education Department supports students through a variety of services including: homebound, psychological, counseling, social work, nursing, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, vision and hearing itinerant services and transportation. All services are determined by a multi-disciplinary IEP team, which includes parents/guardians. The department provides professional development for district personnel in areas best practices for instruction, state mandated requirements and the specific needs of staff.

We provide service to students who are identified as Limited English Proficient. English language learners are provided instruction and support to become competent in the understanding, reading, listening, speaking, and writing of the English language.

A strong commitment from family, school and the community is essential in the success of our students.  I am looking forward to a great school year.  Please feel free to contact me at (708) 868 – 8300. I am here to serve. 

Sincerely,

Vedia Page
