Carroll Hills School

Carroll Hills School provides classroom instruction for students ages 5-21 who have multiple disabilities including speech or motor delays and behavioral difficulties. Currently, the school houses 3 school age classes: Elementary, Intermediate and High School class. The focus of these classes is not only on learning academics in a way that can be used for success in everyday life, but also on daily living skills such as money management, housekeeping, meal planning, personal care and vocational skills. Students work at community job sites once they are in the high school classes and earn regular paychecks, paying taxes just like you and I.

It is our hope to provide the students with the tools necessary to live as independently as possible as an adult. Speech, occupational and physical therapies are also key components of the school program. Carroll Hills School classes are provided in accordance with the rules and regulations of the Ohio Department of Education.



Carroll Hills Preschool

Carroll Hills Preschool offers 5 half-day preschool classes for children ages 3-5 from Carroll County. The classes are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and are designed to work with children with documented delays in speech, fine and gross motor skills, learning abilities, and/or behavioral difficulties.

In addition, slots are allotted in each classroom for children who are considered to be developing typically. This allows for integration and modeling of appropriate behaviors and skills for the age level. Here again, intervention at a young age is key to future success.
Most of the preschoolers who come to us with some type of delay leave preschool and go on to regular classes in their neighborhood schools.


Carroll County Early Intervention:

Early Intervention is a voluntary program for prenatal women, children, and families. A referral is made by calling 330-616-3322. HMG Early Intervention service needs are determined by a multidisciplinary team who evaluates and/or assesses the child's developmental needs. The team is led by a Services Provider who will work to assist and enable a child with a delay or disability and the child's family to receive services and rights as afforded under the Individuals with Disability Education Act. The Board provides early intervention services to infants and toddlers (ages 0-3) who have been evaluated and determined eligible for Part C services due to a developmental delay or diagnosed with a disability (such as Down syndrome). Early Intervention service include home visits by the Developmental Specialists. Research has shown that earlier the intervention the better and by beginning this young a child's chance for meeting developmental milestones and achieving later in school greatly increases. .
