The Developmental Learning Program is a class for students who have developmental disabilities. Students are provided with a comprehensive program designed to maximize their independent living skills within their home, school, work, and community. A low teacher/student ratio is maintained in order to meet the specific needs of each student. Students are provided specifically designed instruction in the areas of Functional Academics, Functional Life Skills, Daily Living Skills and Vocational Skills. Students are involved in the IEP process with their teams, and goals and objectives are worked on in the classroom in accordance with their IEP and Transition Plans.
Students have the opportunity to attend mainstream classes and develop social awareness. They also have the opportunity to establish meaningful friendships and connections with their Peer Mentors. Peer mentoring is a class in which students in general education support the students in the DLP classroom by encouraging and assisting them with work and skills when needed.
