Occupational Therapy

The Work Center curriculum for High School students focuses on the further development of life and work skills, prevocational behaviors and attitudes, including:

  • Executive functioning such as task initiation, organization, planning, sequencing and problem solving.
  • Self-esteem, social development and self-awareness as related to the student’s sense of independence in school and at home.
  • Skills and accommodations for sensory, motor and visual perceptual limitations.

Skill areas are addressed within the context of practical learning experiences.  Students engage in various “jobs” including clerical, accounting and grocery bagger training tasks.  Organizational tools such as calendars, to-do lists and Thinking Maps® are incorporated to assist with organizing, planning and sequencing tasks.


Speech/Language and Communication Services

For 9th graders, Speech/Language and Communication services are integrated into Literature/Language Arts.  This interdisciplinary intervention model allows High School Speech/Language pathologists to assist students in developing and applying oral and written language strategies directly to content area subjects.  Speech/Language pathologists collaborate with Literature/Language Arts teachers in whole-class and small group lessons.

High School students may be scheduled for individual Speech/Language Services, as specified by their IEP.

Learning Prep School provides an individualized language-based program to students with complex learning profiles, including dyslexia, expressive/receptive language issues, autism spectrum disorder, and social communication disorder.
