The Forbush School at Anne Arundel South is an 11-month, non-public Type II special education program located in Ruth Parker Eason Special School Millersville, Maryland. We provide special education and related services to children and adolescents ages five to 21 with developmental disabilities, primarily autism disorder and intellectual disabilities. Our students may also have developmental delays in one or more areas, severe behavioral problems, multiple learning problems, and/or other related disorders.

- On an as-needed basis, provide overall assistance in the classroom to support the teacher and/or work with an assigned student in a one-to-one relationship.

- Provide educational support and behavior management; document student progress; and serve as an escort to students during school or program activities.
