Special Education

Welcome to the Special Education Information Page

Moorestown Township Public School District is committed to providing a continuum of services to address the needs of students with disabilities.  It is the intent of the special education department to meet the needs of individual students through specialized programming, and to ensure they receive an appropriate educational experience regardless of learning differences. 

Moorestown Township Public
Schools provides a range of special education programs and services to our students who have Individual Education Programs (IEPs). Based on IEP recommendations, students with disabilities have access to many learning environments. This includes in-class support, resource centers, self-contained classrooms, as well as both Preschool Disabled (PSD) and integrated preschool classrooms. At Moorestown High School, we offer Community Based Instruction (CBI) and Structured Learning Experiences (SLE) in our state recognized school to work transitions program.  In addition to special education programs, MTPS provides related services such as speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, behavioral supports, and counseling. All of these services are provided based on IEP recommendations.
