Leeway School

  • The program stresses the development of internal controls and personal responsibility for one's behavior.
  • Normalcy is expected; competency is stressed. Teachers strive to become trusted people whose guidance, limit setting and criticism are eventually seen as nurturing, helpful and supportive.
  • They work to build the self-esteem and improve the self-image of students.
  • Teachers provide direction, orchestrating activities and discussions which encourage exploration and experimentation.
  • Our program provides weekly individual counseling to all students. Speech therapy is available when needed.
