Neurodevelopment Program

Our unique Neuro-development program is the first in the world focused on children with neuro-motor challenges, including cerebral palsy and brain injury. Our program is based on the structure of conductive education; we believe that every child is capable of reaching independence and gaining the skills necessary to be successful in life. Our conductors shape the way the students interact with their environment. In addition, physical therapists aid with mobility, play and strength, occupational therapists assist with fine motor skills, feeding, art, music, writing and life skills, and speech-language pathologists engage with communication, language, feeding, writing, and AAC/AT. All of these pieces are seamlessly integrated throughout the school day to keep learning relevant, to maintain time with peers, and to maintain continuity of class and project learning. When the skills are learned in time with class, with peers, their relevance becomes meaningful and students gain functional skills faster.

Assumed competence

We believe that when children are given expectations they can thrive.  If your child has been in a special class, has never been challenged, or the current educators are unsure of ability to learn, we believe in assuming competence.  It may be a situation where you may be granted a trial acceptance to see if it is the best fit, but when given expectations, most rise to meet them.

conductive education

Our conductors shape the way our students move around their environment and utilize every opportunitity to teach independence skills.  Conductive education empowers students to find solutions to everyday problems.

collaboration

All of our students are expected to work together on projects that they help to create.  Working together with different abilities, strengths and weaknesses builds a growth mindset and creates empathetic action.  All of our students learn together, learn from each other, solve problems together and collaborate on larger projects together.
