Staffing for intensive programming
Our team consists of one special educator for each group of eight to ten students, a compliment of paraprofessionals necessary to educate our students at a ratio of 2.5 students for each direct service staff member, additional paraprofessionals as needed to educate students who require a one-to-one ratio, a fully licensed Speech/Language therapist, a Registered Occupational Therapist, and a karate instructor. We also benefit from TIEE’s Transition Services personnel. Managing our teams are three Program Coordinators, all of whom are California credentialed special educators.

We are positive and energetic; we love our work and our students; and we function as a true team, with a common mission to have our students learn as rapidly and as enjoyably as possible. Our professionals are top notch and two-thirds of our Paraprofessional teachers have BA’s.
