When appropriate, instruction includes structured mobility trips into the community. Social/emotional and behavior support is provided as needed on an individual bases.
Therapy and instructional goals are developed in a collaborative effort by each student's team, led by the classroom teacher. Therapy services are provided in an integrated and collaborative model, with specific enabling activities and equipment incorporated into the classroom routine.
