Elementary Program

Elementary Autism student learning in class

The elementary program follows the general Pingree curriculum, programming based on Rethink Autism and functional life skills. Following the USOE guidelines, academic rotations in math, reading and language are incorporated for those children who require structured academic groups. Some individualized programs might focus on the academic skills in a functional manner such as using calculators for math in a grocery setting, color identification for sorting laundry, matching fractions to measuring cups for independent cooking, etc.

Target staff to student ratio is 2:1, however more group presentation instruction may be utilized to enhance peer to peer learning, relations and social development. Learning sessions are scheduled for 45 minutes each for the majority of the day.
