We keep a schedule for our students, adapting for each individual student as he participates in internships or jobs, or on days when he has scheduled doctor or dentist appointments. Individual therapy and family sessions are scheduled throughout the week considering each student’s unique needs.

Weekdays are devoted to academics, therapy, and personal time. Weekends are activity and service days. Every couple of months students go on a trip to get away and explore. These trips are filled with fun, exploration, and challenges outside of their comfort zone.
