Our program has 7 Special Education Assistants (SEAs) who are instrumental in the academic and social success of our students.    

In our K-5 Autism classrooms we focus on highly structured, individualized programming to meet students IEP goals. We also work on communication and language skills, social skills,  positive behavioral programming, sensory activities, and inclusion with mainstream peers when appropriate. 

Monthly community outings: Each month we take at least one field trip around the Twin Cities area.  On field trips, we strive apply social skills we learn at school out in the community.  Our staff and students always look forward to these trips!
