RISE at Prentice Program
The Responsive Individualized Structured Education Program, or RISE at Prentice is a self-contained program located on Prentice’s campus where students receive small group, individualized instruction by two full-time teachers and one full-time Instructional Assistant.
RISE is designed to meet the needs of students diagnosed with low- to below-average cognition who benefit from a curriculum that embeds functional academic skills, life skills and social skills.
Students in this program require more intensive academic and social interventions due to more complex cognitive, language, processing, and social communication deficits.
While this is not a program for students who require individual educational aides, the teaching and instructional staff implement positive reinforcement strategies, scaffolding, and leveled groups to meet the needs of the students. Additionally, Prentice’s Speech and Language Pathologist and Speech and Language Pathology Assistant push into the classroom during the week to support social learning and academic instruction.
