• Welcome to The Morris Plains Department of Special Services!

    The Department of Special Services provides all students eligible for Special Education and Related Services with a program appropriate to their needs.  The spectrum of services ranges from out-of-district programs to resource center classes (both in-class and pull-out), co-teaching and full mainstreaming.

    Many mainstream courses provide in-class support co-taught by a team of teachers.  This inclusive approach combines the expertise of a content area specialist and a special education teacher in an effort to meet the varied learning needs of students. 

    Support services include Speech and Language Services, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy.  Services are provided based upon individual student needs as identified by the Child Student Team. 

    For questions, please contact (973) 531-9586.
