Special Needs

At Central Christian Academy we are committed to providing high quality, enriched faith based education for all students of any ability.  We know that each child may learn differently and have different abilities.  Our school Nurse distributes age appropriate Ages and Stages Questionnaires to help evaluate any special needs.

Parent-Teacher Conferences are conducted in the Fall and Spring semesters.  These conferences are utilized to review developmental milestones and to ensure that each child’s individual goals are being met in partnership with the parents. 

 

We strive to meet the varying needs of our students in many different ways. 

 

1.      Ages and Stages Reviews.

2.      Parent Teacher Conferences

3.      Curriculum and monthly lesson plans
 

Curriculum and lesson plans are created to allow for IEP’s (individual education plans) and scaffolding.  Scaffolding refers to the idea that specialized instructional supports need to be in place in order to best facilitate learning when students are first introduced to a new subject.  Small group work will be planned for that will help and support those with varying needs (either above or below level)
 

4.      Local area early intervention specialists and educational cooperatives.
