Greetings, I just moved to PA and I am trying to find my way around the PA Education System. As I apply to jobs, I am coming across terms that are much different in definition than what I've come across in the past. Now... in PA... Everything is "Support." So, I understand "Emotional Support" = ED class, "Autistic Support"= ASD class, etc. Here's where my question is: What is the difference between "Life Skills Support" and "Multiple Disabilities Support?" What would make a student qualify for one class over the other? Do most districts serve students with severe disabilities in their public school programs, or are they sent to out of district special programs? Also, do the "Support" teachers support students in the general ed setting? If I were the "Autistic Support" teacher would I only have my 8 kids in my self-contained classroom, or would I have additional kids with autism who were in regular ed/resource/etc. to "support" on my caseload?
