Elementary School Program

Who It's For

Students in elementary school grades with significant behavioral disabilities
(Autistic Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, Mood and Anxiety disorders, as well as concomitant learning problems, etc.),
who are not presently meeting the academic and social demands of a regular elementary school setting, even with access to special education services.

Regardless of their social background, no matter how they present themselves to the world, all children want the same things in life— and at the Shepard Elementary School Program, we strive to find the key that unlocks each student’s individual potential, by providing a warm, nurturing environment in which self-esteem and personal growth can flourish.

The Shepard Elementary School Program incorporates all subject areas, as addressed in the New Jersey Student Learning Standards (formerly called the New Jersey Core Content Curriculum Standards) to help students prepare for and cope with the demands of the classroom, through a policy of individualized instruction and behavior modification intervention.
