Seahorse Institute provides research-based quality sub school services for its School within a School Program. It establishes a smaller educational unit within a school, with a separate educational program, staffing, students, and budget. This model replicates a small school, with the goal of ensuring educational growth and success for children with special needs or with specific delays in an inclusion setting.

Students will follow a general educational curriculum, and their individualized educational needs and deficits will be supported through partial pull-outs by trained Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) instructors.

Within this Program, student goals and objectives are targeted in the areas of academics, language, adaptive functioning, and social-communication skills. Individualized programming is based on the learning expectations, outlined in the Individual Education Plan (IEP), which is developed and coordinated by a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). An IEP is designed for each student according to their individual learning needs and strengths. The plan is revised and updated based on the results of ongoing assessment and evaluation. Student progress is systematically tracked and reported to parents and the child’s classroom teacher. Program recommendations are applied in the child’s classroom, and skills learned are generalized across people and settings.
