"Exceptional human beings must be given exceptional educational treatment, treatment which takes into account their special difficulties. Further, human beings can fulfill their social role within the community, especially if they find understanding, love and guidance." - Hans Asperger

The mission of the Office of Special Education is to provide specialized support to enable each student to access the general curriculum.
