The program’s primary focus is on developing the student’s independent functioning within his/her home, school, and community environments. This focus is accomplished through the use of research based materials, teaching strategies and techniques, and components considered as best practice for students with significant cognitive disabilities and autism.
All students are given access to grade level Georgia Performance Standards in the areas of mathematics, reading/language arts, social studies and science. The Adaptive Living Skills Curriculum is used to address specific skills needed in everyday living, including those related to personal care, home living, and school, work, leisure, and community participation. Other skills that are embedded in each of the instructional domains include communication, motor and social/emotional.
Every student should have the opportunity to participate with their non-handicapped peers as much as possible.
