Prentice is designed for students who learn differently
By utilizing a multi-sensory teaching approach as our core instructional methodology we are able to teach your student in the way they learn. Our program strategies are applied in small groups, whole class, and school-wide learning. This helps students generalize their skills across classrooms and attain social skills. Because it's not limited to a specific curriculum, these techniques can serve an individual for a lifetime.
