Within Voyagers’ Community School, we offer, for children who are neurodivergent and able to engage in learning with their peers and teachers, the Individualized Education Services Program (IESP). These children receive personalized and academically-rich support.
Children in this program attend classes alongside their classmates while we “meet them where they are.” They, with guidance provided by specialists, have their needs met through an experiential, project-based, holistic approach.
Children receiving education services through individualized planning and ongoing support CAN and WILL learn in a proven loving and supportive environment, that fosters every child’s ability to shine.
The Individual Education Services Program (IESP) supports children who have the following and related challenges:
The admissions process for new students to IESP requires additional documentation and evaluation. Acceptance is selective and based on the results of a professional review of the student’s current and past school and medical records, reports and test results, and current and past academic experiences. It also requires a two-day visit in the classroom and, possibly, follow up with professionals who assist the school and family in determining if our school is a “right fit.” Parents interested in placing their child in the IES Program should submit all documentation immediately following a school tour.
These services require supplemental tuition.
For more information, please contact our Admissions Team.
Children receiving Individual Educational Services learn about their specific learning style – including both strengths and challenges. They learn how to work effectively, build specific skills, and discover meaningful strategies to ensure success throughout their lives.
Working with a student and family, our specialists develop a specifically tailored service plan that provides a blend of 1:1, small group, and classroom support and instruction to fit the needs of students, most often while in our classrooms and outdoor spaces.
Each child’s support team includes faculty, staff, parents, and where indicated, outside service providers. An individualized plan is collaboratively developed and continuously revised through observation, interviews. and on-going analyses. As part of the collaborative process, the team helps the student to set both long – and short-term goals while celebrating successes along the way.
Formal communication with parents regarding each student’s progress occurs through a digital portfolio, informal communication, student narratives, and quarterly meetings.
Designed to be inclusive, the Individualized Education Staff and Faculty may include a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA), a Registered Behavior Therapist (RBT), Mental Health Counsel, Certified Teacher of Students with Disabilities, Wilson Reading Specialist, Education Specialists, and Paraprofessional.
