Arlington High School

PEACCE

These programs are designed for students with Autism Spectrum Disorders [ASDS]. Our staff is trained in the TEACCH Model as developed at the University of North Carolina. A very defined program provides the structured environment required for the children to learn. Related services as designated on the student’s IEP are provided by TEACCH trained staff within the classroom.


COMPONENT DISTRICT CLASSROOM: 1-8-1

This program serves students who have been recommended by their local Committee on Special Education for a BOCES class in a local district setting as necessary for the least restrictive environment. Mainstreaming opportunities are identified where appropriate. Related services are provided according to students’ IEPs. Regular and IEP diplomas are available through this option. There is a specialized 1-8-1 program at the elementary and secondary levels for students requiring a total communication approach to intensive speech/language needs. Additionally there are classes that focus on Adaptive Daily Living Skills.
