Our Extended School Year program is a three week summer school typically offered in June. Similar to our year-round School program, our Extended School Year focuses on communication and mastery of academic goals. This program is led by one of our amazing teachers with a dual certification to teach those with vision and hearing impairments. We also incorporate our network of therapists to enhance the students time at the Ellis Center.

During Summer School, the students focus on:

  • Mastery of IEP goals

  • Continuation of school lessons through summer in a nurturing environment

  • Using high-tech and low-tech forms of alternative and augmentative forms of communication
