We are so excited to offer a half day school program three days per week for students K-6 who use a speech generating device (AAC/SGD). Our amazing team of therapists and instructors
are experienced in the implementation of academic material using an AAC device.
Using a home school program monitored by two certified teachers and implemented by an SLPA ; our students attend class in a 1:3 instructor to student ratio. This allows for individual instruction within a group environment.
During their day; students attend 1-2 hours of instructional time, as well as individual speech and occupational therapies. We are most excited to offer music instruction for 1 hour per day in a group setting where students are able to socialize with peers and most importantly have a great time with their friends!
As a private school, the Gardiner scholarship is accepted to cover instructional and music time during the school day. Of course, families are also able to pay privately. Therapies are often covered by your insurance.
After initial assessments, a student support plan (SSP) is developed for your child. This SSP will align your student's academic needs with the Florida State Standards for their grade level; accommodating and modifying the material and curriculum as needed. It is tailored to their individual needs in order to allow them to reach their full academic potential. School starts in September and runs through June; with most breaks aligning with Pinellas County Schools. We adhere to the Florida Department of Education rules and regulations.
This unique program offers a "one stop shop" for your student's academic and therapeutic needs. In only our second year of operation; we have seen great success and hope to continue to expand to offer additional services in the coming year.
