Philosophy and Support
Erica Herro '90, our director of curriculum and instruction, works alongside teachers to increase support in PK–8 classrooms.
When a student needs more intensive individual support, we work with families and a handful of independent providers to schedule one-on-one services on campus during the academic day. While our relationships with these professionals are not new, we welcome them into our community of learners. Time is allocated into the daily schedule for students in each grade to receive one-on-one support. Interested families are encouraged to reach out now to learn more about these professionals, establish relationships with them, and reserve space for the school year. We strive to support confident learners with a broad range of options.
As an extension of the Social Thinking curriculum that we teach, students have the opportunity to participate in Social Thinking lunches with speech and language therapists in a small-group setting. Students eat their lunch together, then work on social and friendship skills in a fun and engaging way. We’re truly fortunate to have this wonderful guidance, made possible, in part, by the sponsorship of generous Stevenson families.
Please contact Erica Herro, director of curriculum and instruction, at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
- How were the specialists selected?
- How do I schedule an onsite session for my child?
- If I schedule sessions for my child during the school day, will they miss out on any learning in the classroom?
- Will my child's progress be tracked and with whom will the information be shared?
- If my child works with a specialist who is not on the list, can I arrange for him/her to come on campus as well?
Learning Differences and Accommodations
If your child has a diagnosed learning difference or medical condition that affects learning or presents other life challenges, please provide the relevant documentation to Erica Herro before the opening of the school year.
