The Life Roles Education Program (LREP) provides educational and therapeutic services to middle school students who may have intellectual and /or neurological impairments, multiple disabilities, and/or Autism Spectrum Disorder.
LREP provides classroom instruction that is aligned with the Massachusetts Department of Education Common Core Standards at a level accessible to each student. In addition, programming also includes instruction in self-help as well as social and communication skills that will prepare students for their transition to high school. Therapy services are integrated into all classroom and community experiences. Students attending the 10-month program component have access to Extended School Year services as determined by their IEP Team.
Students’ physical, communication and medical needs can also be addressed in the LREP Program. Multi-sensory instruction, assistive technology, and total communication support are integral to each student’s program. Physical and Occupational Therapies are integrated into daily classroom routines to maximize therapeutic benefits. A multi-disciplinary approach is used to foster participation, awareness, and self-determination through all areas of need.
