School Notes

  • At Arbor School, we follow a developmental approach and meet each child at his or her level.  Therapeutic, academic, and social goals are written based on the child`s developmental level and includes specific multi-sensory goals to help them progress from that point.  Children with autism tend to develop socially and academically with scattered skills unlike children with other disabilities.  These scattered skills can make it hard, if not impossible, to use a traditional approach.  Potty training may happen at 2 or it may happen at 10; verbal skills may develop or not.  It is our approach to look at each child and find those pockets of delayed or missing skills as well as those skills that have developed.  Goals are then based on helping the child fill in those missing developmental milestones while encouraging and supporting their strengths and talents.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
