Each student is accepted for their individual needs and are accommodated
Within the program are individual programs in Elementary, Middle School and High School. Upon enrollment, students are given a fresh start and are greeted with unconditional acceptance. A professional team consisting of a state certified special education teacher, and therapeutic support staff instructs each class of students. This team of professionals implements the Individualized Educational Plan (IEP) and builds an instructional and behavioral plan for each student based upon the goals and objectives of the IEP.
Students are educationally evaluated by the teacher when they enter Austin Centers and instruction is provided according to the needs of the students. Teachers identify any academic areas in need of remediation and utilize specific materials or programs to improve competence in those areas. The general curriculum is aligned with the State of Arizona educational standards, which dictate specific skills to be mastered at each grade level. Instruction is delivered individually, in small groups and in class groupings.
