Delaware Valley School for Exceptional Children is a small, private, non-profit organization which has been in existence for 34 years and whose primary function is to accommodate the educational, emotional and social needs of its students.
Our enrollment consists of 25 classified adolescents with 13 full-time staff members.
Teachers hold the appropriate special education certification and ancillary staff have accrued numerous years of experience in working with our clientele.
Our philosophy is predicated upon “Reality Therapy” in which students are held solely accountable for their actions.
In addition to a well-devised behavioral modification program, several supplementary strategies have been implemented to encourage a positive work ethic and appropriate demeanor.
Academically, our program offers the following beneficial factors: small group instruction; student-staff ratio of 2:1; positive reinforcement; modeling of learning strategies; short term organizational assistance; alternative teaching strategies; frequent encouragement; individual counseling; conflict resolution; peer mediation and structured environment.
