At-Home Learning Program
"The live sessions, in groups and especially 1:1, have been so great and have increased engagement and independence in learning" -- current parent
While our building may be closed, our teachers and staff continue to serve our families through our program!
The Gillen Brewer School remains a family-oriented, multidisciplinary academic and therapeutic program designed to meet the diverse needs of children with language-based and non-verbal learning disabilities. The At-Home Learning Program (AHLP) provides developmentally-appropriate and accessible remote instruction so that our students continue to receive their special education programs and related services.
Our At-Home Learning Program is designed to offer access and support to our students so that they continue to make meaningful academic gains while offering needed flexibility for families. At the forefront of our program is the understanding that each family and home environment is unique and each child learns differently. Each student has a highly individualized program based on their needs (a sample weekly schedule provided separately). All programs include real time remote conferencing and thoughtfully selected online resources.
Gillen Brewer also offers daily Morning Meetings with full classroom teams to engage students in at-home learning, and face-to-face Therapy Sessions. To further support their child’s therapeutic needs, we provide families with ideas for supplemental activities and exercises by integrating them into the At-Home Learning Program. We are also offering parent support groups and we continue to provide all of our regularly scheduled “specials” (science, music, art, other community-based cultural enrichments via our partnerships) to our families at home.
We welcome you to see our program in action by visiting us @gillenbrewer on Instagram!
