Students with Autism

  • The Sussex Consortium Program offers services to a number of different students with special needs. 

    We educate the Sussex County component of the Delaware Autism Program. We are an option for all Sussex County School Districts for any student with an educational classification of autism. Therefore, any school district can refer a child to us when the child’s needs exceed those that the local school district can provide.  Since autism is a “birth mandate”, we can provide services from when the child is first identified through the age of 22.

    We have an integrated preschool program for three and four-year-old Cape residents who are identified with special education needs. Our team of specialists provides evaluations for three and four-year-old children whose parents/guardians have concerns about their child’s developmental progress.   Click here to read more about our Little Vikings program.
    We offer services to Cape students with identified special education needs in kindergarten through twelfth grade whose needs exceed that which their home school can provide.
