    Students who receive special education services at Lawton are provided with differentiated instruction from their general education teachers through our inclusion model, with limited pull-out services when needed for targeted skill instruction. Lawton hosts a Resource and Access program.

    Resource Program. Students in the Resource program receive specially designed instruction (SDI) addressing the mild to moderate differences in their instructional needs for specific academic needs and social skills. Instructional content varies, based on each student’s IEP. These students spend the majority of their instructional time in general educational settings with targeted support. Services may be provided in any setting, based on the student's IEP.

    Access Program. Students in the Access program have more intensive service needs. They receive specially designed instruction (SDI) addressing their moderate to intensive academic and functional needs. Instructional content varies, based on each student’s IEP. These students are able to make progress on their IEP goals while spending the majority of their instructional time in general education settings with a full range of supports needed. These students may also benefit from a variety of specialized instruction, including smaller group instruction and intervention, for part of the day. Services may be provided in any setting, based on the student's IEP.
