Missing our Students

After two months of distance learning, everyone was looking for things to do! At High Road School of New London, we developed "care packages" for each of our students. They contained snacks, outdoor activities, card games, mindfulness coloring books, school supplies, and stress-balls to help try and keep boredom away! We were then able to drive to each student's home to deliver them and say hi! It was so nice to see everyone in person! We miss all of our students! Learn more about our school today.

Applying Principles of Applied Behavior Analysis Parent Training

Our school director Mary Claire conducted a virtual parent training on Applying Principles of Applied Behavior Analysis on 6/24. She was able to train parents along with fellow staff members about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) by reviewing the components of ABA, demonstrate working knowledge of the functions of behavior and applying learned principles of ABA  to scenarios. Educating parents and staff on these topics help increase desired behaviors and decrease the behaviors we don't want to see through positive reinforcements.
