SCEC Classrooms

These high school classrooms provide educational services to students between the ages of 15 and 22 years with an educational diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder, moderate to severe cognitive delays, sensory processing and communication challenges, neuromotor deficits, and/or medical and psychiatric challenges.

The mission is to develop skills that will enable students to become productive citizens in their communities and to participate as fully as possible in all areas of life with the goal of transitioning students to a less restrictive environment.

The program strives to increase the skills of its students in the following areas: communication and language skills, cognitive development, activities of daily living, pre-vocational skills, vocational skills, physical education, positive behavior, and community inclusion.

Focus is placed on producing desirable outcomes for students such as paid employment and being active, contributing members of the communities in which they live.

Educators incorporate research-based best practices with supports provided by continual professional development, technical assistance, and a network of expert consultants.
