CDA will be using four main instructional approaches to facilitate learning by providing opportunities for every student learning mode.
They are technology, web-based, educational software, therapy, small and large group instruction, outcome-oriented individual instruction, experiential and meaningful therapeutic and educational activities that promote each student's educational objectives.
This concept is team driven to provide every opportunity for the students to be educated within a balanced daily schedule of academic learning, therapeutic support, technology, and social-emotional growth; the part of a school that makes it feel "safe" "familiar" "like home" and a "fun place to hang out".
All instructional methods will be developed, implemented, and refined utilizing the most current scientific brain research on learning capacity, research-based therapeutic interventions, cognitive therapy, and social-emotional.
