Guided & Assisted- SEAL Romeoville
The Guided and Assisted Program provides specialized classrooms to serve autistic students and students with varying emotional, behavioral and/or developmental needs. This program focuses on development of individualized success and independence.
SEAL South, Romeoville* develops IEP goals in collaboration with the concerns of parents and the school districts. The program will utilize a database system for periodic evaluation and programmatic description that can be objectively verified.
Communications, sensory, and behavioral support systems are ciritcal elements utilized within these structured environments. A combination of functional academic learning, daily living skills, and pre-vocational programming are individualized based on student needs.
A single methodology is not representative of our practice. Instead, a combination of structured visual learning systems (i.e. TEACCH), community-based learning, job boxes, and individualized programming are used to encance social, emotional, and academic growth. S.E.A.L. also provides related functional services such as individual Speech and Language Therapy and Occupational Therapy.
* The Guided and Assisted spectrum day program is provided only at the SEAL Romeoville location.
