Reaching for Independence Through Structured Education - RISE
RISE is provided for K-8 students at Runkle School and also for BEEP and BHS students at those locations. RISE uses a team approach to meeting the needs of students with Autism or other similar disabilities. These students receive academic teaching, social skills training, behavioral intervention and speech, occupational therapy and physical therapy as needed for each student. Depending on the student, services may be in a full inclusion general education classroom or in a substantially separate classroom and many options in between. An important focus of RISE is to increase independence with a variety of skills including daily living, social skills, behavior management,
communication, and executive functioning.
