In resource room, individual academic needs are supported as defined in a student’s IEP and goals are addressed, which typically focus on developing executive functioning skills, as well as, reading, writing and math. My resource room is alternative. It is continuously evolving and adapting to fit the environment of Village School and to the needs of our students. The students who come to Village School are uniquely diverse with individual needs, and their academic goals are assessed using assignments already assigned, so as to address their goals and to make sure the students are completing the necessary work toward earning credit in their classes. The general focus is on individualized instruction to support our students. The goal, and the overall basis of special education, is to guide our students towards academic achievement and increase their level of independence.
