Special Education Programs and Services

Providing Educational Services for a Better Tomorrow

Program for Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders

The classrooms in this program use Structured Teaching and apply the use of visual supports, work systems, and physical structure. Students in elementary classrooms participate in the general education environment through mainstreaming opportunities to the maximum extent possible for the individual student. Additionally, students gain socialization opportunities and skills through peer support programs. The ultimate goal of this program is to prepare students for success in their home districts.

Preschool ASD Classrooms   

Our program currently operates two Early Childhood Special Education classrooms that service students ages 2 1/2 to 5 who exhibit educational needs that can best be met through a Structured Teaching Program. These students may have a special eligibility of: Speech & Language Impaired, Early Childhood Developmental Delay, or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
