Admission to Arbor Bay School is based on an assessment of each student's individual needs. We serve a broad spectrum of students, including those functioning at grade level who benefit from the small setting with a combination of students with mild to moderate learning differences. Each class is carefully blended to include students with a range of learning abilities. This philosophy is based on research demonstrating that heterogenous, balanced learning groups help all students succeed.
Each classroom typically contains students who may have:
- Specific learning disabilities
- Speech/language impairment
- Mild motor impairment
- Difficulty with attention/focus
- Developmental issues
- High functioning autism
All students need to be able to function independently in the small group setting.
Our process includes:
- A parent interview
- Review of reports (IEP, Assessments/Evaluations, Report cards, etc.)
- Academic screening
- Shadow days in the classroom (at least two consecutive days)
- Trial placement occurs for 30 days.
