Emotional Support

The Emotional Support classes cover the subjects of Reading, Math, Science, Transition, Social Skills, Health, and Physical Education.  Students also have exposure to Family Consumer Science, Geography, and Current Events once each week.
There is an emphasis on each student's individual interests.  Many activities/lessons/projects are developed with student input and are hands-on, requiring cooperation and socialization.
Students in these classes work on social skills daily.  These include communication skills, listening skills, conversational skills, and interpersonal relationships.  Students may role-play situations and brainstorm better ways to solve problems.  There is an emphasis on respect, accepting differences, compassion, honesty, responsibility, cooperation, friendship, dealing with bullies, and resolving conflicts.
