We teach these skills by following a life-skills curriculum and by creating lessons and activities that will support school/home instruction.

Curriculum

The curriculum is taught through a center-based approach in which children will alternate through. There is an academic center in which skills are introduced. Once skills are introduced the next three centers provide contrived opportunities to practice the skills taught.

We have a sensory center, play center and peer interaction center.  Each center blends communication, social interaction and independence to help students become proficient in new skills.
