Diagnostic & Prescriptive Education

At Oasis. We dig in and identify each student’s strengths and weaknesses.

We study each child’s neuropsychological testing provided by parents, often through an independent psychologist. From that base, we begin to design each child’s educational program in order to provide what each student most needs. The loop continues throughout a child’s time at Oasis School for Autism as we collect more data and design new educational opportunities based on the information.

Grouping & Scheduling
Once we identify each student’s cognitive and academic profile, we create small class groupings and a custom schedule that delivers effective instruction.

Unconstrained by large classrooms with few teachers, Oasis School for Autism School is set-up to place students in classrooms and tutorials with peers and teachers that can address weaknesses, accentuate strengths, and challenge students academically. This happens not only in language classes, but all core classes.

Custom Pacing
At Oasis school for Autism, a child’s education moves forward as quickly as possible and as slowly as necessary.

In other words, we expect children to make meaningful progress and our teachers push forward optimistically at all times. Yet, we also make sure that each child can utilize the skills, strategies, and content that they’re taught. Simple exposure is often not enough. We check constantly to ensure that students truly understand, can harness, and “own” what they experience in their classrooms and tutorials.

Interesting and Intellectually Challenging
We don’t just value children’s curiosity, passions, and talents – we build an education around them.

Oasis’s program is designed to ensure that each child has daily experiences in areas where they shine. While remediation of language-based weaknesses is also essential, opportunities in the arts, science, social studies, movement, athletics, outdoor education, social interaction and technology are integral components of the Oasis School for Autism School curriculum. Our project-based and cross-curricular approach keeps our bright and motivated children interested and challenged.
