Special Education

At Merritt Memorial School, two special education programs are offered to students who qualify for special education services: Resource Room classes and our Language Learning Disabilities (LLD) program.

Resource Room

Resource Room classes replace instruction in the mainstream while providing access to the same curriculum. Students are instructed in a small group setting by certified special education teachers using specialized techniques and strategies.


In earlier grades, our LLD program consists of a self-contained class offering multi-sensory instruction with opportunities for academic mainstreaming as per a student’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP). In older grades, students participate in a self-contained class with a wide variety of opportunities for participation in regular education as well as remedial programs.
