Students in our LASSO 3 program learn to self-regulate with the use of adapted Zones of Regulation and token economy systems in order to attend to their learning. There are frequent sensory and movement breaks built into the school day. The Early Childhood through Middle School grades are staffed at a 1:1 ratio. Students in the LASSO 3 program have individual work areas with the majority of the teaching being done 1:1.
