- Sensory and fine motor supports are available with our OT on a push-in or pullout basis. Our youngest students receive formal handwriting instruction (print and cursive) and, by 4th grade, instruction and practice shift to typing. Ongoing classroom observations and consultation with teachers — plus sensory, exercise, and mindfulness breaks throughout the school day — make classroom time and transitions "just right"/organizing sensory experiences that focus on helping students acquire self-regulation and self-advocacy skills. Assistive technology tools appropriate for your child's writing, reading or organizational challenges are readily available.
- Speech therapy and counseling are also available.
- The push-in support of school psychologists and speech-language pathologists promote the development of pro-social skills, and weekly group sessions with each regularly focus on the emotional challenges particular to giftedness and learning differences. All students receive weekly (or more often, if needed) individual counseling with our DBT-trained, doctoral level school psychologists.
