Reaching Independence through Structured Education (RISE) Program

The Reaching Independence through Structured Education, or RISE, Program offers an education experience customized for students affected by autism spectrum disorders. For example, the program:

  • employs staff with strong experience teaching students with autism to meet their individual needs and promote their independence.
  • supports students through a team approach to teach the whole child.
  • meets each student’s social, sensory, academic and communication needs.
  • collaborates with families and outside services to better support each child.
  • uses organized, research-based strategies, as well as a data-driven environment that supports decision-making.
The RISE Program is located at Indian Trail School. During the 2017-18 school year, the program is available for preschool through second graders. This program will grow by one grade level every school year.
