Teacher Consultants work to build the capacity of schools to educate students with disabilities. This includes providing disability specific, support and services, problem solving, crisis prevention and intervention, and technical support.
The role of the WISD teacher consultant is to support the local district with information and services that are not typically available within that district. The teacher consultant becomes a "link" to local staff and assists with program planning, direct student support, implementation of special resources and communication with families.
The Washtenaw ISD provides the following related support service personnel: speech and language therapists, social worker, psychologist, occupational and physical therapists, visual impairment services, and an assistive technology resource consultant. These related support services provide direct and indirect consultation to local district staff , students and families. They also conduct assessments of students with special needs, develop individual programs and offer professional development to school personnel and the community.
