Apply for a Tour of Rebecca School


Our Admissions process begins with an invitation for parents to tour Rebecca School. This is followed by an application packet, which lists required documents, including IEP, teacher/therapist reports, diagnosis, and the parent narrative. Your child will be invited to Rebecca School for an evaluation by our Clinical Director. This session is a simple thirty-minute observation of you and your child at play. Our Clinical Director will evaluate your child’s level of functional emotional development based on the Functional Emotional Assessment Scale (FEAS).  We may also welcome your child back for classroom observation. It is important to establish the right classroom for your child – a place where they will have friends and peers functioning at their level.

About Rebecca School

Every student with neurodevelopmental delays in relating and communicating deserves the opportunity for an educational program that recognizes their individual potential. Using a developmental and interdisciplinary approach, Rebecca School creates a program that meets students’ unique needs, celebrates their strengths and embraces their passions.

At Rebecca School, building meaningful, respectful relationships is the foundation for learning. With collaboration between school, home and the community, the learning goes beyond the classroom. Our goal is to move a student up the developmental ladder to become thinking, relating communicating members of his/her community.

The Rebecca School experience is one of support and challenge. By organizing our classrooms into sensory, symbolic, and semi-structured spaces, daily work is kept appropriate to a student’s needs and interests. Near each classroom, there are also Quiet Areas for any time when a student requires a calming atmosphere.

As the day progresses, students engage with activities that address their individual developmental capacities and guide them up the developmental ladder. Learning expands beyond the classroom to include our hallways and kitchen, weekly shopping excursions and trips to public playgrounds and beyond – anywhere that can deepen their experiences and foster relationships with the greater community.

From piano, drums, and guitar to paintbrushes and paper, creative arts are deeply integrated into Rebecca School’s culture. Music and art cultivate social interaction and pave the way for developmental growth.

Rebecca School helps our students relate, communicate and become creative, logical thinkers, tailoring our instruction so that every student can thrive. Important foundations are established using developmental curriculum such as Thinking Goes to School, and for students at FEDC 6 and above, we adapt standard curriculums to emphasize thinking based activities rather than memorization skills.

These curriculums align with Common Core Standards. Some examples of the standard curriculums include Lindamood-Bell, Handwriting without Tears, Everyday Math and Center for Hands-on Science. Thinking Goes To School exercises are also a key component in every student’s day as a means to improve motor planning, visual-spatial thinking, and sequencing skills which are all precursors to academic learning.

Parents, family, and caregivers are always welcome at the school by appointment and are invited to complete a four-week Floortime™ Certificate Program. It is important to us that the whole family benefits from the Rebecca School experience.
