Our Day School is an alternative to public-school for students whose needs are difficult to meet in traditional public school classrooms, even with supports of accommodations and modifications. Students who enroll may display challenging behaviors due to mental health needs, experienced trauma, Reaction Attachment Disorder or a diagnosis of Developmental Disability as well as autism spectrum disorders. Students may also have associated medical issues such as seizure disorder that can complicate the education program.
