These supports also benefit students without disabilities and those with disabilities other than Asperger’s syndrome and autism spectrum disorder.
Our general education teachers, special education teachers, and therapeutic support service staff work collaboratively with our students and families to identify our students’ unique strengths and challenges. We strive to provide a well-rounded education for our students. In many ways, we function like a typical high school with core academic classes (e.g., math, science), elective classes (e.g., drama, art), and after school activities
In addition to this, we have full support services and transitions teams on staff to provide necessary training in areas such as social skills, occupational therapy, speech-language skills, and transition skills (e.g., preparing for employment, preparing for postsecondary education, and independent living skills).
