• Homebound Instruction

    The Chester County Intermediate Unit offers the following supports for students and families outside of the traditional school setting:

    • Homebound Instruction- Academic instruction is provided when a student is medically excused from compulsory attendance by a licensed medical professional for a temporary physical or mental illness.
    • Instruction Conducted in the Home- Unlike Homebound Instruction, Instruction Conducted in the Home is a recognized special education placement option, and must be decided upon by an IEP team prior to the initiation of these services. When a student is unable to access the educational services outlined in their IEP and they require special education programming outside of a school setting, the CCIU can offer comprehensive services including but not limited to the following:
      • Case management
      • Academic instruction
      • Social skills training
      • Self-help skills
      • Speech and language therapy
      • Occupational therapy
      • Physical therapy
      • Hearing and vision services
      • Psychological services
