Academic Programs

The Academic programme for students with M.I.D. aims to outfit students with the knowledge and skills required for work and independent living. The remediation, reteaching, and developing of compensatory skills in literacy are emphasized. These objectives cross curricular lines and underpin not only Language classes, but Numeracy, History, Geography, and Science curriculum as well.  The use of assistive technology such as text to speech software, provides additional support for students. Numeracy skills needed for independent living and employment are central to Math curricula. Cross-curricular collaborations between Tech and Academic teachers produce meaningful academic course content that supports the literacy and numeracy demands of the hands-on shops at Maplewood. Building on student success, one small success at a time, is the guiding precept of the Academic Department.
