Transitions

Transitioning

The goal of The Harris School program is to successfully transition students back into a more mainstreamed school environment.  There is not a set time frame for reaching this goal, for each child is different.  With all team members fully participating and cooperating, the following outcomes can be met:
 

  • The student will be able to work successfully and collaboratively with others in a variety of settings (home, school, sports, etc.)
     
  • The student will be able to complete a school day without a major behavioral or emotional interruption.
     
  • The student will be able to “move on” and recover when faced with obstacles.
     
  • The student will be able to transition to a recommended school and perform successfully on his/her academic level.
     

When a student is ready to transition, the team approach comes into play again.  The parents, family consultants and teachers work together to find an appropriate setting for the child.  After the transition, we stay in contact with the family and are available for consultations if needed.
