We are so excited to offer a school program for students K–6. Our amazing team of therapists and instructors are experienced in the implementation of academic material for those with Dyslexia, language-based reading disorders, and those who benefit from augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).
Our students attend class in a 1:1 or 1:2 instructor to student ratio, allowing for individual instruction within a group environment.
During their day, students attend instructional time as well as speech and occupational therapies, as needed. 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!
As a private school, the Gardiner Scholarship is accepted for instructional time; 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 August 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!
Tuition is $14,500.00/year which includes materials, books, and fees.

REPORTING CHILD ABUSE, ABANDONMENT, OR NEGLECT
All employees and agents have an affirmative duty to report all actual or suspected cases of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect. Call 1-800-96-ABUSE (22873) or report online at http://www.dcf.state.fl.us/abuse/report/.
Signs of Physical Abuse. The child may have unexplained bruises, welts, cuts, or other injuries such as broken bones or burns. A child experiencing physical abuse may seem withdrawn or depressed, seem afraid to go home or may run away, shy away from physical contact, be aggressive, or wear inappropriate clothing to hide injuries.
Signs of Sexual Abuse. The child may have torn, stained or bloody underwear, trouble walking or sitting, pain or itching in genital area, or a sexually transmitted disease. A child experiencing sexual abuse may have unusual knowledge of sex or act seductively, fear a particular person, seem withdrawn or depressed, gain or lose weight suddenly, shy away from physical contact, or run away from home.
Signs of Neglect. The child may have unattended medical needs, little or no supervision at home, poor hygiene, or appear underweight. A child experiencing neglect may be frequently tired or hungry, steal food, or appear overly needy for adult attention.
Patterns of Abuse. Serious abuse usually involves a combination of factors. While a single sign may not be significant, a pattern of physical or behavioral signs is a serious indicator and should be reported.
Any person, official, or institution participating in good faith in any act authorized or required by law, or reporting in good faith any instance of child abuse, abandonment, or neglect to the department or any law enforcement agency, shall be immune from any civil or criminal liability which might otherwise result by reason of such action.
