Developmental Skills – Regular Assessment (Grades K-8)

Level: Elementary and Middle School (district or center based programs)
Recommended Ratio: Elementary and Middle School 8:1:2

This program is designed for students:

  • with cognitive delays who also have delays in speech and language skills and social emotional development.
  • who may have physical impairment, health impairments or anxiety issues.
  • who may also demonstrate difficulty in self-regulation and behavior management.
  • who may demonstrate delays in self-care and daily living skills.
  • who may need speech therapy, OT, PT and/or our counseling service that are integrated into the classroom.
  • who may struggle with reading and/or writing and require Explicit Systematic Instruction in reading, writing and math.

Students in this program will access some of their classes in a mainstream setting. Students may be in a self-contained classroom in a public school if mainstreaming in general education is not appropriate.
