An Individual Education Plan (IEP) is developed by a local school district (LEA). The Brayton School offers educational services under SEIS (Education In Institutional Settings) based on a patient’s/student’s IEP. Certified teachers, computer specialists, functional life skill instructors, creative arts specialists, and instructional aides provide the education program. Services listed on the IEP that are not available at the Brayton School remain the responsibility of the LEA.
Therapy services for a patient/student are provided by MHS as recommended in the patient’s/student’s Plan of Care that is developed by his/her interdisciplinary team. A varied curriculum of academic, functional life skills, computer, creative arts, and transitional/career assessment programs offers the patient/student the opportunity to maximize his/her skills.
Lower and upper school classes are held five days each week during the 180-day school year, allowing for home visits on weekends and scheduled school vacations, for residential students. Computer based learning at MHS is a strong component of the educational programming. Depending upon a child’s particular needs, improved computer access may be provided by either commercially available or custom built devices, such as chin switches, head pointers or laser beams. Art, music, and the performing arts offer enriching and fulfilling experiences to your child’s educational experience here at MHS.
