The cornerstone of The Diener School, the "Diener Pyramid of Learning for the Whole Child", provides our students with a holistic approach that promotes academics, cognitive functions, constructive social, language and sensory experiences and real life organizational skills. The faculty, in concert with experts in all disciplines will work collaboratively to create a nurturing yet challenging environment empowering children to think independently and have a strong sense of self and spirit. The Diener School's academic curriculum follows the Maryland State Voluntary Curriculum. Our therapeutic curriculum includes social skills, speech and language, sensory, movement and the arts. The Diener School believes strongly in the connection between movement and learning. We provide our students with daily movement including two days of fitness for health. During our fitness for health classes, our fitness instructors emphasize skills such as visual motor coordination, motor planning, sensory activities and hand-eye coordination, through creative and fun activities! Our movement also includes sports skills such as lacrosse, t-ball, soccer, and basketball. Included in our fitness program are weekly yoga and dance. Our holistic curriculum incorporates all of the arts to provide our students the opportunities for creativity and reflection. Students participate in weekly art, drama, music as well as art clubs which emphasize fine arts and art history. We seemlessly integrate our therapeutic strategies within this curriculum. Our therapists and academic tutors meet with teachers regularly to discuss academic goals, themes and lessons. Therapists are in classrooms each morning infusing sensory, language and motor exercises within our academic periods. Student to teacher ratio is typically 4:1, although sometimes smaller than that.
