The Autism Spectrum Disorder Program (ASD) is based at Hailey Elementary School. It includes a speech language pathologist, an occupational therapist, 1 certified special education teacher and 5 paraprofessionals. The team works closely together to form a trans- disciplinary approach, to provide meaningful experiences, which are necessary in order to realize a child's true intelligence.
Each student has a very individualized schedule based on their needs. The team respects and supports each student's unique profile while promoting development through meaningful, relationship- based experiences.
