SFASD offers Learning Support programs (for students with delays in reading and/or math which are significant enough to impact their regular grade level performance), Autistic Support and Emotional Support programs. Speech and Language Support is available in all district schools. Spring-Ford has access to the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, Approved Private Schools, and other local school districts for additional programs, if needed.
