Villa Maria provides a highly individualized approach to education which focuses on skill remediation while utilizing a high-interest, hands-on curriculum. By partnering with our Integrated Services Team of speech and language, social/emotional, and occupational therapists, our faculty employ innovative instruction to remediate a range of language-based learning differences in each class throughout their day. In addition to academics, skills such as social pragmatics and executive functioning are explicitly taught through meta-cognitive, multi-sensory instruction while encouraging students to build independence, resilience, responsibility, self-awareness, and self-advocacy.
