As with all programs at League School, the Foundations Program employs the SCERTS Model as the overarching framework for instruction. These programs are designed to meet the individual needs of those students who are in need of a wide range of services to fully experience the educational environment. All students in the Foundations program are exposed to a small school environment that is sensory friendly with reduced auditory and visual stimuli. Classrooms are grouped by age and skill level, with instruction individualized according to the learning styles of each student. Each class is instructed by one head teacher and at least one assistant teacher. In addition, the Foundations Program is supported by a team that includes a BCBA, clinician, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, behavior specialist, and program coordinator. Physical therapy is also available, but contracted separately.
The Foundations Program serves our early childhood and elementary-aged students between the ages of 3-13. This program focuses on developing communication skills, emotional and behavioral regulation, pre-academic and academic skills, daily living skills, and increasing independence.
The Content Teaching/Life Skills Program is designed for students ages 11-22. Classrooms focus on pre-academics and academics, social communication, emotional regulation, daily living skills, and pre-vocational training.
