We strive to:

  • integrate social-emotional development with the academic process according to Dr. Stanley Greenspan’s DIR/Floortime model.
  • support students’ awareness of their own unique sensory and developmental profiles to facilitate self-advocacy as appropriate.
  • encourage students’ self-determination, community engagement and independence through self-awareness, self-regulation, self-advocacy and the development of life skills.
  • partner with parents and the larger community whenever possible.
  • utilize developmentally appropriate resources and facilities to support the educational program.
  • engage each student at the appropriate developmental and academic level.
  • challenge each student to realize his or her unique potential.
