The Kelly Day School Programs at Caps Education Collaborative are public day school programs servicing students, age 3 - 16 with significant multiple disabilities, including sensory impairments and medical issues. Students are provided educational programming, based on the MA Curriculum Frameworks. The Kelly Day School Program Curriculum follows a Theme-based approach to learning that incorporates the content areas--- English Language Arts, Math, History & Social Sciences and Science & Technology. All lessons are adapted to the level and needs of each child and instruction is delivered in 1:1 and small group settings, with each student receiving 1:1 support throughout the day in all activities.
Besides academic work, a significant emphasis is also placed on functional living skills, including all activities of daily living and community skills, increasing independence across all environments and improved ability to communicate with others. Services available to all students are: physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech/language therapy, vision therapy, oral motor therapy and orientation & mobility services. All students also receive weekly computer lessons and bi-monthly consults with an Augmentative Communication specialist. Students with medical needs are monitored by an R.N. and an L.P.N. who service all classrooms. Additional L.P.N. services are provided in specific classrooms, as needed.
The Kelly Day School Program Mission Statement is: To create a positive, safe and caring learning environment that fosters skills that allow students more independence at school, home and in the community. To maximize the physical, cognitive, creative and social abilities of each unique student in an age appropriate setting.
