Seminary Programs for Students with Disabilities

The following quote comes from the About Seminary page at

Some specialized materials for teaching students with special needs are available to CES coordinators and seminary principals. With approval, reasonable adaptations may be made for students with special needs. Special assistance for deaf students, such as signing, is the responsibility of family members and priesthood leaders.

Highlights from the seminary program:

  • In the seminary system there are a number of employees hired to work specifically with students with disabilities.
  • There are three seminaries adjacent to self-contained schools.
  • Many seminary programs offer reverse mainstream for students with disabilities as well as students without disabilities.
  • There is an official CES Disabilities Guide that is available on their web site.

The 2004 New Era contained a story by Connie Myers titled Friend in Room 102 about a special education seminary class.
