Our Program

De LaSalle offers a rigorous academic program for students who learn differently. Students with special needs are assessed to determine their specific strengths and weaknesses. Placement, resources, and goals are determined on the basis of the student’s needs. Modifications to the regular program may include changes in curriculum, supplementary aides or equipment, and the provision of specialized physical adaptations that allow students to participate in the educational environment to the fullest extent possible.

For example, if the assessment determines that the student cannot write by hand because of a processing difficulty, then the school might provide a computer for typing assignments, or allow the student to answer questions orally instead. If the school determines that the student is severely distracted by the normal activities in a large, busy classroom, then the student might be placed in a smaller classroom.
However, we are not your typical special needs school. There are no reduced expectations here. Our students are presented with many of the same textbooks and materials as students in traditional schools, but in a manner that more closely matches their individual learning styles. Supplemental materials are carefully researched and then incorporated to enhance student learning. Learn more about our Curriculum.

The Academic Program Includes:

  • A full curriculum emphasizing both group and individualized instruction in reading, math, spelling, and writing, as well as classes in science, social studies, physical education, music, and the arts
  • Nurturing relationships between teachers and students which foster academic growth and self-esteem
  • Daily opportunities for success in academic areas
  • Age-appropriate grouping of students in classes and by division level
  • Supplemental materials and instructional approaches designed to match a variety of learning styles and needs
  • Technology, word processing, and web-based research skills integrated into the curriculum
  • High academic expectations for each student
  • Inclusion of students in goal-setting, promoting a constant emphasis on achieving a personal best
  • Therapeutic solutions to help students learn to overcome, cope with, or compensate for any deficits in order to function at their optimum potential intellectually, academically, socially, and emotionally
