We provide an individualized, person-centered, and integrated team approach, emphasizing positive behavioral support, therapeutic relationships, and developmentally appropriate practices.  
  • We are also known for our research based educational curriculum. In a sensory and technology rich environment, our licensed special education teachers provide academic instruction, pre-vocational education, and adaptive physical education. Additionally, speech and language, occupational, art, and music therapies are integrated throughout each student’s program as needed. For our middle and high school students ready to access a generalized curriculum in a supported environment, we offer a departmentalized model in which students change classes, follow a set schedule, and learn to adapt to a variety of teaching styles, just as would occur in the students’ home district.
