A special education itinerant teacher (SEIT) is a licensed special education teacher who works with young children with disabilities in early childhood programs, as well as young children who are medically fragile at home or in a residential facility.
St. Mary’s is a provider of Special Education Itinerant Teachers (SEITs) services. This program employs New York State certified special education teachers who work with young children with disabilities during their preschool years. SEITs work with preschoolers with an IEP in their schools or at home. The student population receiving SEIT services range from children who attend general education day care to children who receive services bedside due to their medical needs. For each child, our SEITs aim to support their development in the least restrictive environment possible by engaging students in a range of activities that help them to achieve the goals set out in their IEP.
