The First Hope, a program for special needs children, is a unique approach to teach children with disabilities. Classes are at a 2:1 student:teacher ratio for all our Inclusion and Transitions+ Programs, except Transitions+ Intermediate and Secondary which is 4:1 student:teacher ratio — with a goal of independence. Our vision is to create an environment of learning and development for special needs children in a Christ-centered program.
These exclusive programs are structured around both Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) goals and educational inclusion opportunities. With a mostly 2:1 student to teacher ratio, the objective is to fully integrate each student into regular classes as each child is uniquely able.
This program is available to children age 3 to grade 12 who are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, PDD, Asperger’s Syndrome, Down Syndrome, Language Delays, Fragile-X Syndrome, Sensory Processing Disorder, Developmental Delay, Severe Learning Disability and other Developmental Disabilities.
All programs include quarterly Parent/Teacher conferences.
