AABLE, ACCESS, OMEGA Programs
Each school district shall provide services to students with disabilities in order to meet the needs of those students in accordance with 34 CFR §300.26. Instructional arrangements/settings shall be based on the individual needs and the IEP of eligible students receiving special education services.
What We Do
The Academic and Adaptive Behavior Learning Environment (AABLE) program includes students with significant deficits in cognitive and adaptive behaviors who demonstrate needs in functional and developmental areas. Instruction emphasizes academic, communication, socialization, personal management, vocational, and functional skills.
The Alternative Curriculum Centered for Exceptional Student Success (ACCESS) program generally serves students with severe physical and/or mental impairments. Oftentimes, these students are not independently mobile, require assistance to care for their daily needs, and may be considered medically fragile. The focus of instruction includes visual and auditory stimulation, motor skill development, assistive technology, developmentally appropriate academic instruction, interaction with others, and communication skills. The ACCESS program assists students in developing communication, self-help, and functional living skills in order to attain maximum independence.
The Outcome-Based Measures Educating Growing Adults (OMEGA) program generally serves high school students with intellectual disabilities or autism who require a curriculum focusing on functional academics, communication, social skills, vocational training, and/or independent living skills training as determined by their Post-Secondary Goals.
