Direct instruction is implemented in whole group and in small group settings. Teachers form small groups and individualize lessons based on data accumulated from careful teacher observation, note-taking, student demonstration of learned skills, and student history from parent input. The staff sends home Progress Reports every 4-5 weeks and schedules Parent-Teacher Conferences at least once per semester and on an as-needed basis.
