CIP (Communication Interaction Program)
In CIP, we believe that behavior is a function of communication and a student's behavior is based on their anxiety level. We use predictable schedules and routines along with other proactive strategies to support student success. Classrooms have an academic schedule with the opportunity to work on social skills during the day. Social skills are incorporated through a variety of social skills curriculum including: Mind Up, Superflex, Michelle Garcia Social Skills, Jed Baker Social Skills, Social Times and more. In addition to the classroom setting, a variety of group activities are used such as: gym, Friday Fun, cooking, service projects, etc., for students to apply social skills.
CIP is made up of 9 classrooms; each classroom has 3-6 students with 2-4 staff members. In addition, there is a number of support staff that help to integrate skills throughout the week. The support staff includes: the program facilitator, an ASD Specialist, a social worker, an occupational therapist and a Communication Disorders Specialist (CDS).
