Our integrated educational approach

In our aquatic program, students have the opportunity to increase their independence through new individual and group strategies introduced by therapists and educators.

At The Matheny School, our mission is to provide an integrated educational and therapeutic experience for our students, who have a diverse range of abilities and disabilities. Here’s how we do it:

• We enhance the potential of children with multiple disabilities through the development of Individual Educational Plans (IEPs) that focus on tailored, attainable goals and objectives.

• We encourage our students to explore their own interests within a positive learning environment.

• We enrich their daily lives by increasing their gross motor, fine motor, and visual and perceptual skills.

• We help our students learn, without limits, through an interdisciplinary approach combining therapy treatment, social services, psychology and medical care.

Our adaptive physical education program develops ways for Matheny students to participate in traditional sports such as basketball.
