We provide a language-based academic and life skills program to special needs students who have a range of learning, communicative, and social disabilities, including children on the autism spectrum.
Instruction in skill development and content is tailored to the needs of each student. Even more individualized are the approaches, strategies, modifications and acommodations we use to help students meet their goals.
Teaching techniques include project-based learning as an alternative to traditional educational methods.
We use a multi-modal approach to capitalize on individual strengths and maximize student success.
As students get older increasing emphasis is given to ndependent living, self-help, and pre-vocational areas. Objectives are addressed through the student job program as well as frequent opportunities to visit and patronize local businesses via our community access component.
Direct instruction in social skills is built in to our program as well, and social reinforcement, bonding and learning are promoted through participation in enrichment and recreationalactivities with peers.
We plan individualized programming based upon ongoing needs-based assessments and diagnostic teaching.
