Specialized Academic Instruction Program: The SAI model is focused on providing support to those students who are able to academically access general education classes with some assistance provided by Education Specialists. Students may receive assistance via Co-Taught, Collaborative, or Learning Supported classes in all core academic areas. We also offer a Learning Strategies elective to assist students in making progress toward goals and to develop their executive functioning skills.
Special Day Class-Moderate/Severe: Our SDC moderate/severe classrooms serve our students who require additional support and instruction in the areas of functional academics, daily living, vocation, and social skills. Students also access general education electives, PE, and all grade level or school-wide activities.
Related Services:
  • Speech and Language: Instruction and remediation in the areas of articulation, fluency, voice, pragmatics, and/or receptive and expressive language. Services are provided using collaborative, push in, and pull out models.
