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.
