Special Day Class
Lattice Educational Services provides a classroom placement option for students who require intensive educational services in a nonpublic setting. Students ages 5 through 22 with developmental delays and behavioral challenges benefit from Lattice's highly structured and individualized program.
Lattice offers a variety of services to supplement classroom instruction, including on-site administrators, behaviorists, speech and language pathologists, school nurses, and an occupational therapist. Other student supports include: frequent reinforcement and breaks in the classroom, high staff to student ratio, visual systems and supports, short work periods, and a playground designed for students with sensory needs. Students are accepted into Lattice through a process including a referral from a district, county office, or other educational agency, student site visits, and transition support for the student.
Typically, classrooms at Lattice serve 8 to 12 students and are staffed by a credentialed special education teacher and 4 to 8 instructional assistants. This exceptionally high staff to student ratio ensures that students receive the individual attention necessary to foster their growth and development. All students receive an education 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.
