The SAIL Program, comprised of five or six classrooms, supports elementary students who have emotional and behavior challenges that may be related to ADHD, learning disabilities, trauma, or other factors. Students succeed in Shore’s SAIL program because classrooms have fewer students, more structure, and well-defined behavioral and academic expectations.
Teachers emphasize essential foundational skills, particularly in math and literacy, in these critical early years of school. Strategies are highly individualized based on students’ learning styles. Academic lessons are supplemented with technology, manipulatives, and motivating hands-on projects that demonstrate real life applications of the concepts that students are learning.
School adjustment counselors and other interdisciplinary team members are often in and out of the classrooms and are scheduled to assist with lunch and recess periods to ensure continuity of therapeutic and educational goals. A reading specialist works 1:1 with students who are evaluated as needing this extra intervention.
