Our Approach to Learning

Kids move  through a series of learning blocks of 25 minutes each.  The purpose of this, is to keep them as focused as possible on the  subject or activity being taught.  Kids receive a ten minute break of a sensory regulating exercise / activity  between blocks.   Different areas of learning and development are addressed using a myriad of activities and resources to allow for individual or small group mastery of different skills.  While working in a small group kids receive individual support and assistance throughout the session as needed. 

Activities are designed strategically to promote improvements in areas of:

Social skills, focus, language and communication skills, processing skills, academics, self regulation, self confidence, life skills, fine and gross motor skills  and more.
