High Road School of Southern York

The foundation of our program is rich in structure and routine. This foundation expands into a multitude of data-driven behavioral and academic services. These specifically connect to a research-based rotational model, focused on academic, social, environmental and sensory needs. This form of learning assists students in practicing flexibility and generalization with multiple staff members throughout the building. With an opportunity for success in multiple areas of the classroom and school environment, students will feel prepared to extend their skills in the home and community, increasing their chance to engage in successful activities and relationships.

“Everything is tailored to the needs of each child.”

Rachel, Raiden's mother

“If I had to give parents advice, I would tell them to send their children to High Road School. Do it for your child’s life and well-being. Do it because you want your child to receive education and structure tailored for their own lives.”

Our Students

High Road School of Southern York is proud to serve students living with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities. We provide programming for students in Kindergarten to age 21.

Our Staff

Our certified Special Educators, Teaching Assistants, and 1:1 Support Staff utilize intervention strategies and approaches to learning that are rooted in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), which is based on the science of learning and behavior. Such behavior can include academic, social, communication, and daily living skills – and any skill that will enhance the independence and/or quality of life for the individual.

Speech-Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy are offered based upon needs identified in a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).

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.

Serving students with significant autism and developmental disabilities, our model takes learned skills and practically applies them to the multiple environments in which a student would use those skills. Students spends portions of their day rotating through different modalities of instruction, the length and the frequency of each rotation is individuality designed for each learner and based on their current skills and future goals.

Each student enrolled in the model has individualized behavior programming which is driven by Functional Behavioral Assessments (FBA). We aim to identify the behaviors that continue to disrupt our student’s ability to access their environment and learning. We then use the data collected from the FBA and classroom data to device strategies that get to the root function of the students disrupted behaviors.

High Road School of Southern York has a comprehensive Transition Program in place for all high school students.  Our Support  Services Coordinator  addresses the transition goals listed in each student’s individualized educational program, and coordinates vocational interest inventories, community outplacements, and on-site school jobs.
