Recreational Skill Building
Imagine Academy is dedicated to advancing the overall development and life experiences of our students. We offer an array of recreational programs, including jewelry making, cooking, leather crafting, biking, skating, boot camp, and adapted sports. Our mission is to foster our students’ abilities while introducing opportunity for growth in the areas of motor, social and self-care skills. These programs are implemented with the understanding of the diverse needs of our students, while allowing them to build on their individual strengths and interests.
All staff who work with a given student are trained to model appropriate language and stimulate language growth throughout the school day. AAC is also integrated into the student’s academic curriculum and programming. We have an expert AAC consultant who observes the students using AAC in their classroom and consults with teachers and classroom staff weekly. She also runs an AAC committee committed to reviewing and implementing AAC goals in the classroom. Students are taught to use their mode of augmentative and alternative communication in all academic environments, at home and in the community.
We provide families with comprehensive AAC training and discuss strategies to promote the use of AAC. Staff also visit the students’ homes to help integrate the use of AAC into the students’ home routines.
