Overview of Discovery

The Discovery Program, comprised of five to seven classrooms, supports students with significant global delays and often complex health challenges. Goals for students in Discovery classrooms are to acquire and strengthen developmental, motor, language, and self-efficacy skills to increase access to academics and life skills.  

Instructional strategies and teaching materials, including assistive technology, are highly individualized for each student. Communication devices and pictures, standers and walkers, switches and “reachers” are among the many items that students access when learning and interacting. 

Most students in the Discovery program receive direct, one to one services provided by Speech and Language, Occupational, and Physical Therapists, in addition to health services and monitoring by Nurses.  Teachers, Therapists, Nurses, and Paraprofessionals work side-by-side to integrate mobility, positioning, communication, focusing, and grasping into all aspects of students’ activities.
