School Notes:

  • The DIR methodology, developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan proceeds from the core belief that relationships are the foundation of learning. Rebecca School staff considers the variations in individual motor and sensory processing systems and tailors each child’s program to his or her specific needs. Rebecca School’s enrichment program offers music therapy, drama, science, art, gym and technology. The curriculum incorporates academics, floor time, social skills training, sensory integration and behavior modification. The School provides the related services of speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling.
