Program Description : The Sheppard Pratt School Glyndon is a nonpublic, twelve-month special education day school serving students ages two to 21 with primarily emotional and behavioral disabilities and autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Part of the Sheppard Pratt Health System, the school has two campuses in Reisterstown, MD, divided by Glyndon Campus (elementary & Middle & Autism and on the Hannah More campus High school thru 21) either age or disability. Each of the programs provides a supportive and structured environment integrating specialized academic instruction, counseling, transition services, and behavioral modification specific to each student population. By establishing a comprehensive, integrated school and psychiatric treatment approach, we are able to offer students and families in the Greater Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas the ability to attend one consistent special education program. Our goal at The Forbush School at Glyndon is to provide academic, behavioral and clinical programs and support services through a sequential curriculum of studies, utilizing the Baltimore County Public School Curriculum, the Maryland College and Career Readiness Standards, and the Syracuse Community-Referenced Curriculum Guide. The staff seeks to develop the potential of each student in the areas of cognitive, social, emotional and physical development, in an effort to return the student to a less restrictive environment in a public school or adult setting as quickly as possible. The Forbush School at Glyndon is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education as a Type I, full-day, non-public special education and related services nursery school (ages 2, 3, and 4), kindergarten, elementary school (grades 1 through 8), secondary school (grades 9 through 12), and programs for students (ages2-21) for students with ASD, emotional, speech/language, and other disabilities, as well as other health impairments.
Related Services : Individual and group counseling, family therapy, physical therapy, speech language therapy, occupational therapy, transition services, medication management, school health services, behavior management and 1:1 classroom aides as needed.
