How We Teach

We provide a high level of customized and individualized instruction, utilizing a full team systems approach by working collaboratively with families and other professionals within the individual’s circle. We begin our work by meeting each student where they are, building a trusting and supportive mentoring relationship between our staff and families, with a focus on individualized goals and objectives.

Our group programs use the backdrop of real life activities, experiences, and environments to teach independence, social interaction, and problem solving in the moment. We teach the individuals we work with to transfer ownership of their responsibilities from their parents/guardians to themselves. We hold the individuals accountable for their goals without judgement.

Long Term Benefits

Skills learned during sessions can be generalized into school, work, and everyday life, at all grade levels and beyond. Individuals gain a sense of independence, sense of purpose, sense of belonging, self-advocacy and self-monitoring skills that they learn can be used in everyday life. The independent skills developed lead to an increase in autonomy for the young adults, which has the potential to lead to improved family dynamics.
