About the Elementary School
Elementary school students thrive in small classes of five to nine students; each classroom has a certified special education teacher and a classroom aide. Instruction is paced to accommodate students with language delays as well as motor planning and processing difficulties. In addition to academics, students receive social skills training through direct instruction and throughout the school day via modeling and guided practice. Community experiences are also integral parts of the program.
The elementary school also offers curriculum rich in speech and language instruction. The focus is on the development and integration of speech and language skills and academic success. A special education teacher and a classroom aide work collaboratively with a speechlanguage pathologist to create a therapeutic environment designed to support the goals of each student.
