Setting IV Behavior Program
Our Setting IV Behavior Program provides social, behavioral and academic programming directed toward identified conduct disordered or oppositional defiant students to gain skills to effectively function in their home school, work and society. Students receive an academic education as well as an opportunity to learn how their behavior caused them difficulty with their parents and community. Individual counseling, group counseling and social skills are important components to this program.
Purpose: To provide a highly effective counseling and academic program for students with emotional and behavioral disabilities and to provide support for their families.
Philosophy: To provide a program with a focus on stabilizing the student, supporting the family and facilitating the student's return to their home school. We serve in partnership with students, parents, educators and other professionals to service our students and families.
Setting IV Severe Disability Program
The SUN Program is designed to meet the needs of elementary special education students with severe disabilities meeting the Minnesota criteria for Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (mild to moderate, moderate to severe, and severe to profound) and Severely Multiply Impaired. Students may have minimal to no verbal skills. The program will focus on communication and behavior with the goal of students returning to the home school district if the student is able. The initial phase of the program will serve up to six students. At this time we will not be serving students with high medical needs and/or high personal care needs.
