    The Classroom supports ELA, Writing and Math subject areas. We have a combination class of Intensive support and the Alternate Assessment/MSAA.  Our focus is to support each student's individual needs. We specifically work on individual educational program goals. Our approach is from a multi-sensory learning style. Students all learn differently and we support each child's individual learning style. We foster advocating for self, initiation skills, self-confidence and growth in independent learning. We advocate and support  self emotional regulation, social communication and transitional support. We also have a program that supports students in regular educational settings with reading, writing and math skills.
