The Lattice Educational Services school provides a classroom placement option for students who require intensive educational services in a nonpublic school setting. Students, ages 5 through 22, with Autism and/or other developmental delays and behavioral challenges benefit from Lattice’s highly structured and individualized program.
At Lattice, students learn skills that:
- Enhance their ability to communicate
- Support achievement in functional academic and social skills
- Develop greater independence in meeting a variety of daily living needs
- Promote enhanced social interaction and community integration
- Maximize future vocational opportunities
Typically, classrooms at Lattice serve 10 to 12 students and are staffed by a credentialed special education teacher and 6 to 8 instructional assistants. This exceptionally high staff-to-student ratio ensures that students receive the individual attention and care necessary to foster their growth and development. All students receive an educational program that is aligned with their Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Consistent, on-going evaluation of student learning, as well as feedback from parents, care-providers, and other agencies, allows staff to effectively tailor educational services to student needs.
To meet the intensive needs of its students, Lattice Educational Services offers a variety of services to supplement classroom instruction. Support staff include on-site administrators, a school psychologist, two speech and language therapists, a school nurse, and an occupational therapist. This team of professionals works in partnership with Lattice’s classroom personnel to ensure that each student is fully supported in the educational process.
Students are accepted into Lattice Educational Services programs through referral from a school district, county office of education, or other local educational agency. Prior to enrolling students, Lattice and the referring organization share written information and complete site visits, as appropriate. This cooperative involvement ensures that students experience successful and appropriate transitions between programs.
