Special Education

At University High School Charter, we have a variety of Special Education programs to ensure that your students are being supported. 

Special Education Programs at Uni

Resource Specialist Program
Grade-level content standards and curriculum provide the foundation for all instruction. In collaboration with the general education teacher, the resource specialist implements a program of student support consisting of an array of services.

Special Day Program
To maximize student learning, mild to moderate Special Day Class settings provide a smaller class size than a typical General Education classroom and often have a paraprofessional to help meet student needs and facilitate small-group lessons.

Alternate Curriculum Special Day Program
This is a self-contained classroom that provides instruction with an emphasis on functional and daily living skills. Students engage in electives, community-based instruction, and job programs.

Autism Core Program
Students with an eligibility of autism and in the Special Day Program have the option to enroll in a communication skills class that pair students with peers to develop communication skills. Projects that allow students to engage with one another and develop executive functioning skills occur weekly.

High Functioning Autism Core Program
This program supports students in general education classes while building communication skills.
