Group and classroom skills are targeted to support students for potential success in public school settings. Behavior excesses that interfere with a student's ability to acquire new skills or to remain productive in a classroom setting will be addressed through positive intervention programming, focused on prevention and the teaching of functionally equivalent alternate skills. Land Park Academy works with our students to maximize independent functioning in order to experience a higher quality life.
Land Park Academy provides intensive, individualized educational programs developed for each student based on assessments to determine skill deficits, behaviors interfering with learning, and general adaptive functioning. The educational programs have a strong behavioral basis while addressing each individual through wide-ranging programming. Our program structure can be visualized as a pyramid that allows us to treat the ‘whole’ child, taking into consideration physical needs, relational and social-emotional skills, formal communication skills, prerequisite and advanced learning, and academic skills. Our overarching goal at LPA is to enable our students to learn to be as independent as possible while achieving program milestones to allow access to the least restrictive educational setting.
Various assessments, curriculum, and teaching methodologies are combined to determine current levels of student functioning and to develop individualized goals and objectives for meeting unique areas of student need. Functional skills development is the primary focus for most students. In preparing each customized program, LPA refers to both California State Standards and the Special Education Administrators County Offices (SEACO) adapted standards for learners with challenges.
Placement of students at Land Park Academy will be made through the joint cooperation of each student’s home district, the student's Individual Education Plan (IEP) Team, and Land Park Academy. All students attending Land Park Academy will enter with the ultimate goal of transitioning to a less restrictive environment. This transition will occur when the IEP Team reaches consensus that the student has achieved the agreed upon goals and possesses the skills to potentially be successful in another setting.
