Comprehensively and Expertly Educating Students with a Broad Range of Disabilities
Our program can fully accommodate all deficits—from mild to moderate to severe—and because many disabled students have coexisting disabilities (like emotional disturbances or learning disabilities) that affect their learning styles, our special education services address a vast range of disability profiles.
Rotating Through Learning Areas Throughout the Day
Supplemental curriculum software programs are prescriptively assigned for additional skill development.
Special education teachers deliver specialized instruction utilizing High Leverage Practices (HLPs) for intensive, explicit intervention. Instruction takes place in small groups based on student’s individual skill levels, pace, and learning styles.
Assistant Teacher Instruction
Students work in small groups with the assistant teacher on specific skill remediation designed to reinforce and support teacher instruction.
Students are able to develop a personal sense of accountability through independent seatwork. Student workbooks and other reinforcement materials are selected according to skill needs at an independent level.
Treating the Whole Child
Each student’s IEP determines their particular instruction modalities and lesson plans, yet all students benefit from our comprehensive education model and evidenced-based behavior management program.
Each student’s learning and language needs are accurately identified using our multi-tiered hierarchy to determine a students’ academic level:
Tier 1 – Students on Grade Level or 1 or More Years Below Grade Level
Tier 2 – Students 2 or More Years Below Grade Level
Tier 3 – Students 3 or More Years Below Grade Level
Developing a Student’s Plan
Teacher’s analyze a student’s individual assessment data to target the specific skill areas in need of direct and systematic intervention. Based on the student’s assessment, individualized materials, methods, and programs are selected to match the students specific Reading, English, Language Arts, and Math needs
Through Data-Based Individualizations, we focus on research-based practices by linking our intervention methods to a student’s assessment data. By customizing towards each student’s needs, we are able to plan accordingly while also adjusting our implementation methods depending on the individual student.
Safety First: Providing a safe learning environment for all students. Parents, districts, and students are reassured that our environments are secure, nurturing, and supportive.
Positive Reinforcement Techniques: In order to reach their personal behavioral goals, our staff and teachers providing continuous and ongoing positive behavior support for all students.
Mutual Respect: By showing students the importance of respecting themselves and others, they learn to honor the differences among them while also gaining an appreciation for rules as well as authority figures.
Strong Therapeutic Approach: In order to teach self-regulatory techniques, establish emotional balance, and create a sense of inner well-being, our staff and teachers deliver compassionate mindfulness techniques, guidance, and counseling for all students.
Data-Driven Interventions: When a student is having difficulties beyond the support of the school-wide behavior management system, the staff will utilize data to inform future intervention strategies.
