School Notes:

A multidisciplinary team addresses each child's unique profile of strengths and needs, and strives to work closely with parents in the development and implementation of the Individualized Education Program (IEP). Intensive speech/language therapy is provided both individually and in small groups within the classroom. Other related services offered include audiology, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, counseling, social work, and psychological services. A half-day or full-day pre-school program for 3 and 4 year olds emphasizes language development, social skills training, and school readiness. The full-day classes for 5 - 12 year olds provide a structured program geared to the development of language, academic skills and appropriate social behaviors. Emphasis is placed on expanding and refining language skills that, in turn, support social growth and academic progress.
