Jacob's Ladder offers small group instruction for students who meet the criteria for these placements. We see this as an integral step from the intensive 1:1 individualized intervention that we provide to a more typical classroom setting, as well as an opportunity for experiential learning and adventures. Selection criteria for Summer Discovery Group is based on level of self-help skills, social/emotional goals, and academic level with the hourly rate being determined by the ratio required. The classrooms will serve children with 1:1, 2:1, or 3:1 ratio, with additional support as needed. Activities range from outdoor exploration to academics, artwork, music and movement all of which develop fine motor, gross motor, tactility, language and peer interaction, all delivered within our group teaching model by a team of teachers and specialists wholly committed to the growth and well-being of our students.
