Our staff includes an NILD-CERTIFIED INTERVENTIONIST (National Institute for Learning Development) who works one-on-one with students to help them boost their learning potential. Our learning interventionist guides the students through brain exercises that increase working memory, bridge learning gaps, and improve their academic performance.
For the 2017-2018 school year, we are adding a full-time SPEECH/LANGUAGE PATHOLOGIST (SLP). Our immediate goals are for additional staff training in APPLIED BEHAVIORAL ANALYSIS, the use of positive reinforcement to bring about meaningful changes in social behavior.
Our instructors use programs such as Visualize/Verbalize and Wilson Reading to increase reading fluency and comprehension.
On Cloud 9 is a program that helps students understand abstract math concepts. We are designing a STEM classroom and currently use a number of math games and activities to help students understand algebraic and geometric concepts.
We offer the Social Competence Intervention Program, which uses drama and role-playing to help students develop effective and appropriate reactions and responses to a variety of challenging situations.
In order to enhance executive functioning skills, everything we do is purposeful, predictable, structured, and consistent. For the 2017-2018 school year, we are integrating the SMARTS (Strategies, Motivation, Awareness, Resiliene, Talents and Success) program, a research-based tool.
