Academic Life Skills Program (ALSP)

NDSEC's programs for students identified with cognitive, physical or multiple impairments utilize a trans-disciplinary team model in supporting the needs of students with developmental difficulties. Skills presented in this program focus on a modified curriculum based upon the Illinois Learning Standards aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Instruction and therapies work in collaboration to support the curriculum and students' individual goals. These programs are located within public schools or a community setting so that integration with typical peers can occur.
