Welcome to Our Class
Our classroom is using Unique Learning System® as the classroom curriculum. The curriculum program has been designed specifically for children with special learning needs.
While the foundation of Unique is the academic content standards (reading, writing, math, science and social studies), the lessons are modified to make sure that all children have a way to participate and learn. There is a strong emphasis on life skills that are embedded in each lesson. The primary goal of Unique Learning System is to give each child a way to participate, learn and succeed in the classroom.
