Steps students receive team-based behavioral and academic instruction from certified special education and content area teachers, school social workers, and registered behavior technicians. All students enrolled in the program also participate in weekly individual counseling sessions, work towards successfully completing their postsecondary and transitional goals/objectives with our school counselor and transition coordinator, and participate in a school-wide tiered behavioral support system that is monitored by Steps’ on-site Board Certified Behavior Analyst. Steps students may also choose to utilize the supports at Steps to earn gainful employment and their driver’s license.
