Curriculum & Treatment

Based off of the student’s IEP and through a continuous comprehensive assessment, each student at NWSOIL receives grade-appropriate academic instruction combined with an ongoing therapeutic treatment environment.

NWSOIL incorporates School-Wide Positive Behavior Support (SW-PBS) into the learning environment; with this integration into the classroom, the underlying theme is teaching behavioral expectations in the same manner as any core curriculum subject. For example, the expectation is that each student embodies Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible, into their code of conduct. Consistency from class to class and adult to adult is very important for successful implementation of SW-PBS and strong family engagement and empowerment is encouraged for the success of your child.

With the implementation of therapeutic exercises; students will be able to:

  • Gain independence and socialization skills
  • Have a better understanding of personal boundaries and interactions
  • Overcome anxieties, take risks, and be able to express themselves
  • Improve communication skills
  • Practice leadership and care taking roles
  • Gain confidence
