In the elementary classroom, OCS teachers strive to provide the level of differentiation necessary for individual students. When that level of differentiation is not adequate, additional academic support may be provided. The academic support program is staffed by certified teachers, trained to provide the support needed to prepare students for a successful school experience.
The elementary school program provides a pull-out lab, where the student receives daily, in-person academic support with the academic support teacher. The program targets reading deficiencies and offers research-based interventions to provide students the literacy and executive functioning skills needed for academic success. In addition to one-on-one and small group support, the student also receives an academic support plan that assists the regular classroom teacher in meeting the needs of the student.
