Students are referred by their Windham Public Schools to attend Camino Alto. Our students are generally in grades 6–12. Our student populations face disabilities in a variety of areas, including Learning Disabilities, Emotional Disabilities, and Other Health Impairments, and more.
We are proud to employ certified special education teachers and each room has two teaching assistants for additional support. Camino Alto has two full-time social workers, and all staff are trained in crisis intervention programs, including Life Space Crisis Intervention. Students in Camino Alto that require additional services, such as Speech & Language, receive it with qualified Windham personnel.
By focusing on key areas — academics, behavior modifications, support services, and transition / life planning services — we are able to meet the individual needs of all students through these varied approaches to instruction. Through collaboration with a student’s IEP team, we are able to choose the most appropriate learning model based on a given student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, and ability to learn in a group setting.
Utilizing four specific instructional rotations, students are assessed academically, gain self-regulation skills, learn with district-aligned academic curriculums, and utilize integrated technology.
