Students, Parents, and Staff share their experiences with our unique learning environment.
Spectrum Academy does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations.
Children on the autism spectrum process information differently than children without an ASD--which means that a child with autism learns differently than a child without autism. These learning differences can, at times, create educational challenges that may seem impossible to overcome.
At Spectrum Academy we meet these challenges using our research-based curriculum as teachers seek to blend the requirements of the Utah State Core and Common Core Curriculum, social skills instruction, and sensory integration with identified behavior-based instructional practices for children with autism. To further meet these challenges, teachers, staff and parents at Spectrum Academy plan educational goals for each student while observing five distinct guidelines.
Our staff seeks to:
Assess all of our students' individual needs.
Plan instruction and intervention to meet those needs using multi-tiered systems of support across all areas of instruction and development.
Provide ongoing progress-monitoring, including the identification of alternate measurements to allow for diverse learners to demonstrate mastery.
Support our community with parent training in the form of community outreach and the grooming of effective partnerships.
Teach all of our students to the maximum capacity that they can learn.
