Services and Supports
With the student-centric support they receive while at The Forbush School at Anne Arundel, our students reach goals that they may never have been able to achieve before.
We work with our students to promote independence and learning, and many of our students stay with The Forbush School at Anne Arundel through graduation. Other students come to us for extra support, and then are ready to transition back to their home schools or other placements. We encourage parent participation at The Forbush School at Anne Arundel, and hold regular IEP meetings to determine if our facility continues to be the appropriate environment for each of our students. Additionally, we regularly share information with families about our programs, Sheppard Pratt Health System offerings, the programs held at Ruth Parker Eason, and resources throughout Anne Arundel County Public Schools.
For those students who graduate and receive their Certificate of Completion, we work closely with each family to provide services and resources that make the transition to adulthood and independence smoother. We connect our families with information and agencies providing job placement services, housing options, and more.
We provide the following related services:
- Speech and language therapy
- Psychological services
- Psychiatric services, including medication management
- One-to-one dedicated aides
