CAPS Language Acquisition Preschool Program

The CAPS Collaborative Language Acquisition Preschool Program is designed to meet the individual needs of Deaf and Hard of Hearing preschoolers. The program is housed in an acoustically treated classroom at the Bennett School; a small, neighborhood preschool and kindergarten in Leominster, Massachusetts. It is a full-day program where the students receive direct instruction by  Teachers of the Deaf, a Speech-Language Pathologist, and an Instructional Aide. Staff communicate with the students using the most appropriate method for each child, whether it is oral communication or oral communication with Sign Language Support. There is a small student to staff ratio in order to meet the specific learning needs of the child outlined in his/her IEP. The preschool curriculum  follows a Theme-based approach to learning that incorporates the areas of English Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Music and Movement, and Art into each day. In addition, the curriculum is designed to accommodate each child's individual learning style and is aligned to the Massachusetts State Frameworks.
