Pyramid Therapeutic Preschool, our therapeutic preschool, strives to help students develop the academic, social, and developmental skills necessary to be successful learners in typical elementary classroom settings. Our individualized and global approach works with your child’s strengths and challenges to utilize a variety of therapies and approaches best suited to your child’s needs.
Based on the child development pyramid (shown below), we employ multidisciplinary teaching strategies, including DIR/Floor Time and ABA/Applied Behavior Analysis, and offer modalities such as Therapeutic Listening and Interactive Metronome to our enrolled students.
We start with a comprehensive evaluation to determine strengths and needs, provide an accurate baseline of developmental skills in all developmental domains (cognitive, speech/language, gross & fine motor, adaptive, social-emotional), and review complete medical history including auditory and vision status.
Specific services will be provided to support each student, based on individual challenges, while utilizing their strengths to foster the foundational skills needed to reach school readiness goals outlined by The State of Illinois. Each student’s progress is charted monthly with periodic parent/team meetings and a six-month re-evaluation.
Our “whole child” approach is designed to provide a positive and integrative experience for children who need support in a classroom setting.
