Dunbar Hill Elementary School’s Intensive Support Classroom

Dunbar Hill Elementary School’s Intensive Support Classroom is an In-District program serving the students of Hamden Public Schools. With a dedicated staff, students are able to access both academic and social emotional education in a small and predictable environment. Focused on individualized education, our students have the opportunity to build confidence and competence in a caring environment with the ultimate goal to transition back into one of the many center-based and resource-based programs within the district.

Our Students

Students are referred by their school district and are generally in grades K–3 (aged 5 to 8). We serve students with emotional disability, Autism Spectrum Disorder, multiple disabilities, other health impairments, and more.

Our Staff

We are proud to employ a full time special education teacher, a social worker, two teaching assistants, and an education director.

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.
