Students have a guide to follow each day, which gives them opportunities work in all subject areas, including but not limited to, Mathematics, Culture/ History, Science, Language Studies and Reading. We presently use the Saxon Math Program and the Houghton Mifflin Reading curriculum.
Language studies are a strong focus with this age group. We work on vocabulary building, reading comprehension and spelling. The goals for the students are to gain a confident and strong knowledge base in both, ASL, and English.
