Program Services

This assessment center collaborates closely with parents and districts to identify appropriate academic and clinical supports for middle and high school-aged students with social/emotional difficulties. We help teams better understand the skills and needs of our students to identify supports and strategies that will enable them to progress in the least restrictive environment. We provide: 
  • Customized educational and clinical assessments
  • Individualized academic and clinical services
  • Data driven and function based behavioral intervention
  • Positive Behavior Intervention and Support (PBIS) framework
  • Evidence-based clinical practices such as CBT, DBT, and Social Thinking
  • Behavior practices rooted in ABA and PBIS

Discover the opportunities for all learners through our programs and services

Housed in the same building as our alternative school, SOAR gives access to services, expertise and facilities not typically offered in short-term assessment programs. We offer individualized tutoring and small-group academic instruction in areas such as comprehensive academic support, music, art, physical education and other electives. SOAR instruction is guided by the curriculum of the student’s referring school. Students enrolled in SOAR may have opportunities for integration to provide additional assessment data relevant to factors contributing to the challenges a student is facing. The Coordinator of Assessment & Intervention or Director of Therapeutic Programs links SOAR and sending districts to ensure the implementation of instructional activities and documentation of completed coursework.
