Christopher Donovan Day School

Our curriculum is based on educational research and aligned with the broader goals and objectives we embrace. The scope and sequence for each academic area’s curriculum provides structure and definition. Teacher manuals associated with each curriculum area provide guidance on how to present and/or modify the curriculum for each individual student. We provide differentiated classrooms, where teachers are better able to respond to the various needs of individual students. This learning environment encourages critical and creative thinking, problem solving, experimentation and innovation. A multisensory approach is utilized along with multiple materials to meet the unique needs of each student, including some materials not typically found in traditional schools. We also utilize technology within all academic areas in order to maximize each student’s achievement and level of independence. When it comes to teaching our students, we consider their social and emotional development as well as their academic development of every student when constructing and implementing their individualized programs. In addition to academics, those individualized programs include pragmatic, sensory motor, behavior management and life skill components.
