Our Academy is for children ranging in age from 3 to 7 years. We have a preschool academy for ages 3 to 5 years, as well as a kindergarten, first and second grade academy for ages 5 to 7 years. Classes meet Monday-Friday from 8:30-3:30. Class size is limited to 10 children. Emphasis is placed on the development of basic and more complex language abilities as well as language-based learning readiness skills including listening and early written language. Children are provided with a rich variety of opportunities for learning important academic, reading, writing, math, science, cognitive and problem-solving skills, fine and gross motor coordination, play, self-help, and social skills.
When appropriate, individual treatment ST, OT, PT sessions supplement the group program by providing a intervention to teach new skills or practice an emerging skill in a one-to-one situation. PT, OT, and ST are included in the annual tuition and they are usually during the school day.
The Phonology Group is designed for preschool children between the ages of three and five years of age. This small group meets for a half hour each day. Our goal is make this an effective group by keeping the class size between two to three children. Therefore, placement is at the discretion of the preschool staff. Prerequisites for placement include a moderate to severe phonological delay, the child’s level of maturity, which is typically exemplified by functional attending behaviors, auditory memory, and verbal imitation skills. If you have questions about placement in the phonology group, please discuss this with the preschool staff prior to completing your registration form.
