Depending on the needs of your student population and the available resources of your district, we can customize our Spectrum learning environments into the right educational setting that will bring the most benefit to your district – and maximize the academic, behavioral, and social success of your students.
Orion started at Spectrum Center 3 years ago as an elementary school student, in our Academic Skills classroom learning environment. He was faced with some challenging behavioral issues and needed the extra support of a non-public school. During Orion’s journey with us, he struggled with problem-solving, managing his behavior, and social-emotional challenges.
Spectrum offers an educational solution on a district campus that provides students with disabilities more access to typically developing peers while being intensive enough to meet their needs. Students receive the individual attention they require and still have access to the benefits of being on a school campus. Spectrum is accountable to public school districts to provide special education and related services in the district building that meet the educational needs of all enrolled students and follow federal, state and district policies and procedures. Students are provided an environment that is positive, focuses on mastery learning and measures progress to ensure success. Spectrum can also provide ongoing professional development to build the internal capacity of district personnel to deliver services to students with intensive needs.
Spectrum non-public schools (NPS) are state-approved elementary or secondary schools that specialize in providing services for students with needs so exceptional they can’t be met in a public-school setting. Our NPS offers individual and group counseling; behavior supports; social skills instruction; speech, occupational and physical therapy and academic assistance according to a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) in a separate setting. Many of these programs are located on public school campuses, where students can participate in school with their typically developing peers. Students receive individualized and targeted behavioral interventions to address their specific areas of need, with the goal of a successful transition back into the least restrictive environment or into adult life after high school.
Therapeutic Day Schools
Spectrum Therapeutic Day Schools educate students who require a more structured environment with intensive mental health supports to learn academic, behavior and social skills. We provide individual and group counseling, behavior supports, social skills instruction and academic assistance according to the student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP).
