Additionally, each child is provided with an individualized education program (IEP) that fosters his/her own social and academic growth. Social pragmatics classes are part of the core curriculum for all students. This form of therapy is provided in a group format and integrated into each student's individual learning program. Pathways Academy also provides other speech/language therapy as well as occupational therapy and sensory integration, as needed.
