STAR Program-ASD

Our classrooms provide support to students who require intensive interventions and individualized programming in a small, highly supportive setting. Communication and behavioral support is an integral component of programming focused on addressing the function of a behavior and environmental interpretations from the student's perspective. Specialized therapy supports as well as assistive technology contribute to the program success. Therapists work in collaboration with staff to embed goals across a student’s day for improved independence.

Small class size allows students to learn at their own rate, supported by a high staff-to-student ratio. Functional academics and vocational skills are modified aimed at increasing attending, organization and independence. Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks serve as a foundation and all students required (by chronological grade level), participate in the MCAS or MCAS Alternate Assessment. Social skills are supported through direct lessons, facilitated reverse inclusion activities, participation in school-based activities, community outings, and home/family support.
