The number of students with Complex Global Disabilities (CGD) in our schools, including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder, and other behavioral and learning challenges, is rapidly growing.
As educators and professionals, we are facing a changing student population, which presents challenges to our “traditional” special education support programs.
“Traditional” special education support programs focus primarily on academic needs; our changing student population needs this academic support, but they also require social/emotional, and behavioral support delivered simultaneously.
the connections model™ was created to address these changing needs. We take a holistic approach to assisting these children, beginning with the most basic foundational skills and then building up from there. Our background in psychology and special education give us a real life understanding of the challenges faced by today’s educators and students alike.
TCM Consulting assists in integrating the connections model™ at your school to suit your needs and the needs of your students with CGD through:
- Curriculum and technology development
- Staff training and development
