Student Services and Support

  • Barrington Community Unit School District 220 offers a full continuum of special education and related services to children ages 3-21, who meet specific eligibility requirements. We are committed to providing services in the least restrictive environment. We offer the following services:

    • Speech and Language
    • Occupational Therapy
    • Physical Therapy
    • Psychological/Social Work Services
    • Hearing Itinerants
    Barrington District 220 provides consultative services, resource services and instructional level services at all age levels. We have Instructional Cross-Categorical classrooms that focus on students with academic needs, social-emotional needs, multiple needs, and needs that may fall on the Autism Spectrum. These services are available to students at all levels if it is needed. All service decisions are team driven. 
    The goal of special education and related services is to support each child and address their individual needs. An Individualized Education Program (IEP) is developed in collaboration with parents, general education teachers, and special service staff on a yearly basis minimally.
    If you, as a parent, have concerns about your student's progress or information about an IEP, please contact either your student's school team or the Special Services Department at 847-842-3507.
