A strength-based approach to education
At Mosaic, we are dedicated to providing purposeful experiences, educational opportunities and therapeutic interventions for students with developmental disabilities in Vermont. We seek to provide meaningful, positive change in the lives of our students and their families. Within public schools throughout Vermont, we provide supports and services ranging from diagnostic or program assessment and team consultation to more comprehensive programs like our Mosaic Classroom or Intensive Integrated Intervention (I3) with 1:1 staffing.
Within our independent schools, we provide a supportive environment that offers unique opportunities for students to incorporate their interests aligned with the Common Core State Standards. In addition to academic instruction, there are a range of activities for our students to participate in throughout the day such as yoga, basketball and art as well as an opportunity to develop social, culinary and daily life skills. We build community outings into the day which can include indoor and outdoor recreation as well as volunteer and vocational experiences.
We successfully transition many of our students back to their public schools. This process is student specific and takes into consideration the strengths of the students and their community providers. We work with the public school staff to create individualized support and staffing plans to ensure stabilization and successful integration.
Across all educational settings, our clinical and educational team assess the full developmental profile of our students to include: cognitive, social-emotional, language, motor, behavioral and medical. Integrating the best practices from each discipline provides us an opportunity to create a holistic, integrated, and developmentally appropriate plan for maximum achievement.
