Program Description : The Sheppard Pratt School at Hunt Valley is a program of the Sheppard Pratt Health System, Inc. (SPHS) and under the auspices of SPHS Board of Trustees and Administration. The Director of Education is responsible for the governance and operation of the education program. The students attend classroom and community-based instruction individually and in small groups. A student to staff ratio of 1:2 is maintained at all times. Instructional areas, which are determined by each student’s IEP, may include communication skills, self-care, individualized academics, fine and gross motor skills, socialization skills, and recreation/leisure skills. Each student has an individualized schedule for programming in school that outlines his or her instructional day. Our primary goal is to help the students to become more independent and access as many environments and settings as possible. In this way, they can be better integrated into less restrictive school and community settings. The school implements the Maryland State Curriculum for College and Career Readiness, The Syracuse Community - Referenced Curriculum Guide for students with moderate to severe disabilities, The Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP), and Essential for Living (EFL) Curriculum.
Related Services : Related services available include psychiatric services including medication and over-site, speech and language therapy, psychological services, school nursing services, and occupational therapy. These services are provided by direct therapy and/or consultation as indicated in the student’s IEP.
