In both classrooms, curriculum along with their ABLLS-R protocol is followed and modified to the learning style of the student. Multiple teaching techniques are employed to promote the acquisition of academic, social and communication skills. Multi-sensory materials and visual aides help each child progress through the curriculum. Enhancing self-esteem and building appropriate behavior continue to be an important part of both classrooms.
Children are grouped together primarily by receptive language and learning readiness, although expressive language levels and styles may vary.
