All children deserve an education that prepares them for the future; a future we cannot yet see, but one that will take courage, sensitivity and perseverance. At the International Institute for the Brain, our curriculum seamlessly integrates each student’s developmental needs with intellectual and physical skills attainment goals. iBrain’s educational department meets students of all levels where they are across all subjects, including those at academic grade level.
Classes are small with ideal student/teacher ratio of 6:1:1 or 8:1:1 to ensure each student receives the individualized care and attention necessary to remain engaged in the learning process. With a smaller class size, our teachers can get to know each student as an individual, working with them to enhance their strengths and improve their weaknesses.
iBrain’s educational program focuses on the development of academic, cognitive and social skills aligned with each student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP) designed by iBrain. All skills and strategies are taught through Direct Instruction.
Teachers meet with each student individually each day on their targeted individual academic goals. Additional activities supporting academic goals take place in pairs and small groups. Paraprofessionals are trained to reinforce and encourage academic skills throughout the activities of the day to ensure these skills are generalized.
Progress on IEP goals are tracked on a consistent, daily basis through individualized, teacher-created data, which is collected, measured, analyzed by our specialist team and reported quarterly. By monitoring and focusing on every student’s performance in the classroom,our teachers and paraprofessionals can better evaluate the child’s progress and adjust instruction if necessary.
