What do we offer our students?
Our Department for Exceptional Children offers half-day and full-day classroom preschool programs, along with elementary, middle school, high school and transition classes limited to six, eight or twelve students supported by one teacher and one to two paraprofessionals. Our programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of children with developmental, intellectual, learning, physical, emotional and/or behavioral disabilities, as well as children with autism and medical needs.
Who are the students in our classes?
Our students have special needs in one or more of these categories:
- Learning Disabled,
- Emotionally Disturbed,
- Speech and Language Impaired,
- Visually Impaired,
- Hearing Impaired,
- Orthopedically Impaired or
- Intellectually Disabled.
They are in our classes because they need a smaller, more personalized environment offering special materials and techniques in order to learn and to reach their full potential. Most classes are located in school buildings in the local school districts, so the students may interact and integrate with their peers and participate in typical school routines and activities. In addition, some special center-based sites accommodate multiple classes.
