A Special Education Itinerant Teacher (SEIT) is a licensed special education teacher who works with young children with disabilities in early childhood programs and those who are medically fragile at home or in a residential facility.

On behalf of the New York City Department of Education, St. Mary’s is a provider of Special Education Itinerant Teachers (SEITs) services. This program employs certified special education teachers to work with young children with an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). The student population receiving SEIT services ranges from children who attend general education daycare to children who receive services bedside due to their medical needs. Our SEITs aim to support each child’s development in the least restrictive environment possible. This is done by engaging students in various activities that help them achieve the goals set out in their IEP.

St. Mary’s Healthcare System for Children provides SEIT services in New York City.
