Students are referred by their Plainfield Public Schools to attend Plainfield Pathways. Our students are generally in grades 7–12. Our student populations face disabilities in a variety of areas, including Emotional Disturbance, Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and multiple disabilities.
We are proud to employ certified special education teachers, two teaching assistants per classroom, and a school social worker. Students in Plainfield Pathways that require additional services, such as speech & language, occupational therapy, or physical therapy, receive it with qualified Plainfield 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.
