The Prentice School has a robust selection of support services program on-site that includes speech and language, occupational therapy, school therapist and after school tutoring.
The Prentice Speech and Language Program is a unique fusion of school-based and private clinical settings that offers collaborative, fully integrated speech and language development services within the school hours.
This program includes fee-based assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of speech, language, social communication, and the cognitive processes that underlie communication in children with language-based learning difficulties. Emphasis on collaboration bridges our students’ speech, language, communication, and pragmatic goals with their academic needs in a multi-disciplinary approach involving Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs), Speech-Language Pathology Assistants (SLPAs), Teachers, Staff, and Parents.
Our occupational therapist (OT) works with our students to promote independent function in these common areas:
Fine and gross motor skills
Visual motor skills
Executive functioning skills
An assistive technology specialist is on staff at the school to assist the specific EdAT needs of individual students. All Prentice students have access to the following types of Assistive Technology:
Graphic Writing Organizers
It is very common for our students come to us at their most critical time of need. We know that there are times when anxiety and doubt occurs. The Prentice School employs a full-time MFT therapist that understands the interpersonal and relational aspects of our students, as well as the social contexts in which problems occur. The MFT office is directly connected to the Quad area and has an Open Door policy for our students.
For students that are looking for additional assistance outside of the classroom, we provide full after school tutoring sessions that can be booked directly with our team.
