Academic growth is a priority for our students despite their learning challenges. We use evidence-based instructional programs and strategies that engage students visually, auditorily, tactilely, and kinesthetically. Instruction that integrates multiple sensory pathways helps our learners connect to, recall and apply important academic concepts and skills.
Understanding how to be a positive and productive member of a school community can be challenging for students who learn differently. Intentional instruction paired with ample opportunities to practice social skills sets the stage for successful peer interactions and a positive school experience.
Planning, organization, initiative and self-control are examples of executive function skills often under-developed in learning-different students, yet critical for success in and out of the classroom. Because we take nothing for granted, executive function skill instruction is integrated into every classroom, every day.
