Program Description:
The Children’s Guild, Inc. serves special education students in grades K through 8 diagnosed as autistic, emotionally disturbed, or with multiple disabilities. Each classroom is equipped with a Smart Board and each student has access to a personal computer. The Guild stresses parental involvement, as parents take part in an orientation process, parent activities and a parent group. The educational program is based on Prince George’s County Public School’s curriculum, aligned with the Maryland Core Curriculum Standards and DC Standards. It is enhanced through project based learning techniques. The classroom team consists of certified special education teachers, a social worker, and IEP aides, as needed. A medical team oversees crisis and medication management, as well as seeing to emergency and minor medical issues. Individual, group and family counseling are available as specified in the child’s IEP. A transition program is available for students to assist them in being successful after discharge. Students who are at risk of regression during the summer attend an extended school year program. The Autism program provides a highly structured classroom environment that uses the TEACCH Model component and regularly scheduled daily activities.
