Teach Me Academy is a unique private school program that offers a one of a kind transitional experience for children with developmental delays (social, communication, cognitive, or any combination.)
Teach Me Academy was originally designed for families who choose to “homeschool” their child, but need support in the design and implementation of curriculum and instruction. Since our students have challenges with social skills, it is a important part of their growth to be immersed in an environment that fosters social development. The birth of our program encompassed inclusion through “dual enrollment”and included the design of individualized academic curriculum.
Curriculum is selected specifically for each learner in a natural educational environment. It is sensor based, hands-on, and concept driven to accommodate various learning styles and contribute to meaningful knowledge. The specific curriculum of Bethany Christian School is also integrated so that each child can have exposure to the traditional format. This aides in a smoother transition to becoming a full-time student of the school when the child is deemed “ready.”
The option of intensive behavior and speech therapy are provided on-site through Therapy & Beyond and are offered through the school day and after school. This enables many students to gain the skills necessary to thrive in such a group environment. Teach Me Academy offers an integrated approach, designed for children who show mainstream “readiness” yet still need the benefits from an individualized education plan.
