The Specialized Language Based Program (SLBP) provides comprehensive educational and therapeutic services for students grades 3 – 5, with specific learning disabilities, challenges with language development, sensory integration, and social/behavioral skills deficits. Students may present with Dyslexia, Specific Learning Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/ or Neurological impairments. This program provides a language rich environment paired with visuals, systematic reading and math curriculum as well as multi-sensory instruction to address the specialized needs of the students.
The SLBP program incorporates learning that meets the specific needs of Language Based Learners, incorporating opportunities to practice learned skills repetitively while consistently teaching grade level standards. Through services including social skills, PT, OT, speech and counseling, students are able to have all their needs addressed in one setting so that optimal learning is possible. A small staff to student ratio allows for one on one instruction and individualized teaching which enables all students to reach their education goals.
Students can access mainstream opportunities in the general education classroom within the public school setting. The goal of the program is to help students achieve their potential and improve their sense of self worth through success in the classroom both academically and socially and eventually return to their home district.
