Ivymount’s basic school program consists of a Lower/Middle Division for students ages 4 to 14, an Upper Division consisting of a non-diploma High School Program for students ages 14 to 18, and a Post High School School-to-Work Program for students ages 18 to 21. The school provides therapeutic, pre-academic, academic, and functional life skills programming depending on the ages and needs of the students. All the students receive speech and language therapy and occupational therapy services. Physical therapy and social work services are provided as determined by the child’s IEP. An Assistive Technology Team works with classrooms, providing services to students and families and training to staff. A Behavior Resource Team works with students needing individualized behavior programs. Art, music, adapted physical education, library, and computer lab are offered to all classes. Extended School Year programming is available as determined by the student’s IEP.

The Asperger Program provides a differentiated and structured learning environment for students in grades 2 through 7 with a diagnosis of Asperger Syndrome or a related disorder (including High Functioning Autism and Pervasive Developmental Disorder/Not Otherwise Specified). This program incorporates the general education curriculum and social skills programs so that students master their individual annual academic, social skills, life skills, and emotional regulation goals. Assistive technology is incorporated as indicated for each student. Related services are provided in an inclusive, classroom-based model in addition to individualized services as required by a student’s IEP.

The Ivymount School Autism Programs provide structured teaching environments offering students ages 6 through 21 diagnosed with Autism/Pervasive Development Disorder, opportunities for one-to-one, two-to-one and small group instruction in an eleven-month program. The program uses Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) methodology and is a center-based model for education and treatment of autism.
