William’s School provides students with an individualized learning environment where we believe all students can thrive when given the right support. Typically staffed at one teacher for every 2-3 students, our program is ideal for students who need individualized learning and small ratio classrooms. A custom packet of therapies is embedded throughout activities in their daily schedule. Therapies can include any combination of Speech therapy, Occupational therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis. Schedules are highly individualized to each student in our program.
Our preschool program is designed as an inclusion model for students 2-5 years old. The program includes both individuals with and without special learning or behavioral needs. Our peer model students provide age-appropriate models for language and play. The small ratio classroom allows for individualized instruction at all learning levels. Our use of hands-on learning techniques and our focus on social emotional learning and independence in the classroom prepares our students for their entrance to a Kindergarten program
Our Social/Academic Track focuses on teaching students to take an active role in all aspects of their life. This program pairs individualized academic instruction with direct and indirect social skills instruction. Our low teacher-student ratio ensures that students can be supported in guiding their education in a way that is self-paced through topics of interest to each student. A combination of teacher-led and computer-based instruction allows our students to work at their optimal level, even if those levels are different between math, reading, social skills, and other subjects. A teacher to student ratio of 1:4 is used in this program.
Our Therapeutic Track provides a teacher to student ratio of 1 teacher to every 2-3 students which allows for constant support in acquiring communication skills, self-help skills, modified academic skills, and behavioral support. Students are not grouped according to their age or grade level, but instead classroom activities are individually modified for each student to meet their understanding of the topic. We focus on meeting students at their current skill level and moving forward from there. Students in the therapeutic track have additional support provided by our ABA, Speech, and OT teams to integrate therapy goals into the classroom and support their integration into group and classroom settings.
Our summer camp offers 7 consecutive weeks of structured daily activities for students looking for consistency in schedules and routines in the summer months. Campers participate in themed activities within a daily structure. Our experienced staff and therapy teams allow for the inclusion of campers with any range of support needs.
Our camp runs from mid June to the end of July.
Speech therapy, Occupational therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis are available on-site and integrated throughout our students’ school day. We have optimized integrated treatment by scheduling consistent and frequent team meetings to have all therapists and teachers working in unison, helping our students to reach their goals faster. Collaboration between clinic and school teams is an integral part of our program and having all therapies on-site allows families to receive all needed services in one location and during a typical school day schedule.
The Speech Therapy team at the William Mosing Center believes that every person deserves to have their voice heard and it is our mission to help them find the best way to express themselves. Here at William’s, we work with individuals with a variety of needs including but not limited to Speech Disorders (articulation, phonology, apraxia, etc), Language Disorders (receptive, expressive, and pragmatic language), and other disorders. Using a collaborative approach, a program is created to help find the most effective and functional mode(s) of communication unique to that individual. We work closely with parents, teachers, and other therapists (ABA, OT, etc) to provide consistency and promote the carryover of skills to all aspects of the individual's life. Being able to communicate independently is the foundation to positive social, emotional, and academic growth and gives our clients the chance to be autonomous, independent members of their community.
The work, or, “occupation”, of childhood is to play, become independent in self-care tasks, and to succeed in school and community. Occupational therapists can evaluate and provide treatment to help children with conditions that prevent them from participating in these occupations at a level similar to other children their age. Occupational therapists do this by working on fine motor skills, visual motor skills, appropriate responses to sensory information, and independence in self-care activities.
Occupational therapists at The William Mosing Center are able to work closely with teachers and staff at William’s School to facilitate the carryover of skills to the educational environment, and to integrate therapeutic strategies into our students’ school day.
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA)
At The William Mosing Center we provide ABA Therapy based on the science of Applied Behavioral Analysis with a focus on compassion, communication, and self-advocacy. Therapy is implemented from a nurturing, whole-child, and practical lens. Programs emphasize the necessary social and emotional skills that increase success in a variety of environments, including community and educational settings. Replacement skills are taught to give individuals alternative, safe methods to meet their needs. A collaborative approach is taken to ensure that the family and related therapists are involved in creating a unique program.
