Special Education

Our Special Ed program is characterized as a mild/moderate program, which means it serves children who have been identified as having mild to moderate special education needs.  Bromwell’s  Mild/Moderate Teachers name is Susan Duncan.  You can reach Ms. Duncan @ Susan_Duncan@dpsk12.org.


Students are identified for these services through a comprehensive team approach which involves the child’s parent(s), classroom teacher, speech therapist, Rachele Johnson, school psychologist, Francesca Simpson, school nurse, Brooke Goudy and Mild/Moderate Special Education teacher, Susan Duncan. The school’s occupational therapist and/or physical therapist are also part of this team if there are concerns regarding the child’s fine or gross motor skills.


Once identified, an IEP (Individual Education Plan) is developed based on the child’s needs. The purpose of the plan is to remove barriers to learning. Services may range from consulting with the classroom teacher to direct instruction in the Mild/Moderate classroom (Room 117).


Bromwell also has the resources of several itinerant therapists (serving more than one school). Our speech and occupational therapists service children two days per week. Our physical therapist comes one day per week.
