Program Description:
Kennedy Krieger at Central High School is designed to serve students with special needs in an environment that is integrated into a comprehensive high school. Support is provided in the Kennedy Krieger classrooms by providing small class sizes for academic subjects, modifications to curriculum, and accommodations in instruction designed to meet the individual needs of the student. A system of positive behavior management and supports is utilized to increase student success and promote adaptive behavior. Behavioral supports and academic instruction are augmented with a program focus that infuses the school day and all subjects with an emphasis on social skills. The program is staffed by an Educational Director, special educators, a teaching assistant, a speech/language pathologist, a behavior specialist, and social workers.
