Our classroom consists of a fully equipped kitchen, laundry space, private restroom, therapy room, computer center and academic learning areas. The Developmental Resource program is led by one certified special education teacher and a team of highly qualified paraprofessionals. Our team serves a wide range of learners and is dedicated to focusing on the individual needs of students.
Students enrolled in the Developmental Resource program engage in instruction that promotes overall independence and includes skill building in the areas of functional academics, career exploration, and activities of daily living. Involvement within general education settings remains a high priority and is determined based on individual student needs. Our classroom maintains a solid Peer Tutor program that encourages relationship building with same age peer groups within both self-contained and general education settings.
