The Mariposa Program
About the Program
In this school area, we focus on developing and maintaining valuable life skills, communication skills, and independence in our students. This is done by encouraging self-advocacy, expression, and the use of communication devices throughout the classrooms. Along with implementing core academics, we want to prepare our Mariposa students to live as happily and independently as they can!
The Mariposa program serves exceptional students ages 12-22 trough individualized education and vocational/life skills outings in the community. Students in this area receive a unique offering of core academics and life skills lessons during their school days.
Mariposa Spreads their Wings!
Our Mariposa students partake in many different activities throughout the week to improve their socio-emotional and life skills. These include but are not limited to group speech and music therapy, grocery shopping, cooking, field trips, ballroom dance with our friends at Dynasty Dance Clubs and Face Autism, Inc., and volunteering with our partners at Mothers Helping Mothers! Community connection is an integral part of the day-to-day structure for our students and is a great way to keep them engaged.
