    Course Description

     Language Arts

    The focus is on individualized language building utilizing materials from our Speech

    Pathologist, WH questions, prepositions, verbs, and vocabulary. Functional Reading,

    writing, and learning to fill out forms assist students in developing skills needed to

    ensure employment.


    This course is designed for individual needs. Learning money and how to use it,

    various aspects of time, how to read a calendar, analog and digital clocks and apply

    that information.


    Students will learn about various body systems and how they work. They will discover landforms and the relationship between them and the weather. Students will explore the differences between animals and plants.

     Social Skills

    Focuses on individual weak areas and assists students in making better behavioral choices to achieve a positive outcome. 


     Daily classroom procedures

    Students will begin the day with fine motor skill work and move into gross motor skills in the Sensory Room. This room is available when needed. Students will work through their programs, and on goals while transitioning to each station for functional skill training. 


    Behavioral Expectations

    Behavior expectations and programs are individualized; each student must work on a behavior of their choosing, (with guidance). Each student will be respectful of peers and faculty, be responsible, and ready to learn.


    Approved Masks - will be worn at all times in the hallways, restrooms, and in any classrooms where social distancing cannot take place. If a student/staff are less than six feet apart a mask must be worn. All masks must be on the approved mask list. 


    *If you DO NOT wish for pictures to be taken of your student while in my

    classroom, please let me know. I take pictures for teaching purposes and will be

    videoing this year in Social Skills. I also like to share pictures with parents, your students do amazing things!
