Special Education Day Schools
Special education day schools are designed to meet the needs of the child with exceptional learning challenges. Offering a safe and therapeutic learning environment, day schools provide individual counseling, adaptive physical education, and speech and language services to students with specialized needs. Students receive customized instruction, using individual lesson plans developed to meet each child's specific emotional, physical, and/or academic requirements.
The majority of day school students have been unable to find success within the traditional school environment because of moderate to severe behavioral, physical, and/or emotional obstacles. Providing a rewarding, positive learning experience through a specialized curriculum offers such students the opportunity and tools to be successful. Small staff to student ratios ensure personalized attention and a nurturing, supportive environment to help students build self-esteem, and to develop and practice more acceptable behaviors.
