These classes are designed for students with moderate disabilities due to having a behavioral disability, Asperger’s syndrome, high functioning autism, or other related language-based disorders who require an educational environment focused on classroom-wide instruction in the development of behavior management, communication and social skills. This program provides intensive intervention within a self-contained class for the majority of the school day. The primary goal is to return the students to full-time enrollment in the general education program with continuing support in social skills as needed. A teacher with a credential authorizing instruction of students with mild to moderate or moderate to severe disabilities plus additional training and/or experience in autism spectrum disorders, behavior disorders, or speech and language development is assigned to each self-contained class. One instructional assistant is recommended for each class. Additional instructional assistants are provided as determined necessary to  implement developed IEPs and maintain the safety of students and staff.
