Little Garden SchoolHouse
Our school infrastructure provides a wholesome environment to house children and youths with a diverse range of special developmental and learning needs, including autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and multiple disabilities, which may involve a combination of intellectual, physical, visual and/or hearing impairments.
Our life skills curriculum approach blends academic, daily living, personal/social, and occupational skills into integrated lessons designed to help students learn to function independently in society. These students do possess the potential to live and work in the community if they receive appropriate life skills instructions such as numeracy, literacy, travelling and journaling.
Expression through arts or participating in group movement are activities for special needs children that can help improve these difficulties and put children with special needs on the level of their neurotypical peers. Understanding emotions is important for an individual and for learning how to interact in peer groups. We focus on group activities for special needs children that focus on social and emotional skills.
Fun In Nature Escapade
Holidays can be a challenging time for children with special needs and their parents. Many families face a decrease in school and therapeutic hours. This may leave parents with extra time to fill during the day. In a supportive outdoor atmosphere of acceptance, fun & adventure, we welcome children and adults of all developmental disabilities.
