In this environment:
- We implement a modified curriculum with aligned functional skills goals and objectives using standards-based core curriculum
- Incorporate repeated learning opportunities using both highly structured and naturalistic teaching strategies
- Focus on generalization of skills across stimuli, people, and environments.
- Reviewed student progress frequently to assist in data-based decision-making and to guide the instructional process
Each student’s individual education program (IEP) is customized based on a thorough assessment of their unique skills, abilities, interests and needs.
The ChanceLight Functional Skills Approach
Applied behavior analysis (ABA), a discipline devoted to the understanding and improvement of human behavior, is the foundation of the functional skills approach to teaching children with intellectual disabilities.
The ABA curriculum includes specific strategies for:
- Increasing social, communication, academic, and vocational skills
- Decreasing behaviors of concern based and teaching alternative behavior and self-control skills
With this approach you can expect:
Research-based curricula aligned to state standards taught in a predictable, consistent environment
Behavior analysts work to identify target behaviors and develop positive behavior support plans
With a foundation in Applied Behavior Analysis, we teach students the skills needed to be successful in school and life
In support of your district needs, students follow a developmental progression plan in critical areas, like:
- Expressive/receptive/spontaneous communication
- Social and Adaptive Living Skills
