Program 1

The Whole Learning School

The educational program at TWLS provides a nurturing, safe environment where children can reach their greatest potential. Using small class sizes (9:1 or less) and master-degreed special education teachers, TWLS provides individualized curriculum designed for the specific needs of each child.

In addition to core academics, TWLS teaches critical life and social skills to prepare students for adulthood using the transition domains of daily living skills, community involvement, recreation and leisure and vocational skill development. Students learn self-management skills through relationship development, social skill building, personal reflection and sensory diet awareness. TWLS focuses on the student’s whole life, creating benchmarks for their achievement at school, home and in the community.

Using a multiple intelligence model and responsive classroom techniques, students learn how to think, learn and reflect on the strategies that make them successful. The curriculum at TWLS is designed for students who will benefit from individual instruction using a multi-sensory approach for academic instruction, social skill development, practical life skills and vocation preparation.
