Preschool

We offer a state approved, full day preschool program which follows The Creative Curriculum®, providing a strong link to the state-mandated PreSchool Learning Rubric.

Our comprehensive program incorporates sensory, mobility, fine motor, social and thematic language/literacy experiences into the activities of the school day.

Also included are instructional and social integration with typically developing peers*, as well as weekly art, music, physical education, computer, and iPad training.

Specialized feeding interventions as well as a full spectrum of related services are provided by highly experienced therapists using state of the art equipment and evidence based practices.

Elementary-Secondary Educational Programs

The curriculum is multi-sensory in nature. Each student’s educational, social, recreational and life skills are developed through the modalities that best match his/her learning profile. We support the functional use of augmentative and alternative communication systems and assistive technology all day, every day.

Our elementary through high school classes utilize Unique Learning System® (ULS) to address the rigorous demands of the Common Core State Standards® (CCSS). Unique provides the platform upon which our transdisciplinary teams build multi-sensory activities to address educational, social, recreational, and life skills. Using Unique’s assessments, individual educational plans are created and addressed using other supplemental programs including Project Read, DT Trainer, Edmark Reading, Making Words, Touch Math, and Connecting Math Concepts.

News-2-You (http://news2you.n2y.com/), an adapted online periodical, is utilized to encourage literacy exposure, communication and social skills while addressing current events in sports, government, science, pop culture and more.

 

Extended School Year (ESY)

An ESY is available for our students. Eligibility is determined by the student’s educational team as documented in the Individualized Education Plan. The ESY programs are approved by the NJDOE with funding typically provided by the referring local school district.

Certified teachers; physical, occupational and speech therapists; social workers, nurses; art, physical education and music teachers work together to prevent regression of previously taught skills through special educational, recreational, and social summer activities.
