Preschoolers attend class from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and school-aged children attend class from 8:30 a.m. to 2 pm., five days per week. Individualized pre-academic and academic programs include intensive, individualized sessions that alternate with small-group activities that teach children to relate to classmates and participate in social situations. Each child's schedule of learning activities is especially designed to meet his or her needs, but all programs emphasize language development and social interaction.
Curriculum is individualized for each child based on their needs and criterion-referenced assessment in order to identify individual learner goals.
Because all intervention activities are data-based, teachers, therapists, and parents directly observe daily performance and collect data to provide objective feedback and ongoing evaluations of the effects of each intervention. On the basis of these data, individualized programs are revised or redesigned as needed to ensure each student's continued progress.
Students receive instruction in the following areas:
SK-HOV provides a learner-driven approach to education within a 6:1:3 ratio. Because all interventions are individualized and data-based, teachers, therapists, and parents observe daily performance, coordinate efforts, make data-based decisions about the ongoing effects of each intervention and create quality programs for each student. Based on the feedback, individualized programs are revised or redesigned to assure the child's continued progress. We use a scientific approach to teaching to help students achieve goals.
