Beacon Day School was founded having recognized the need for a quality educational program for students with autism and related disorders. In order to create a positive learning environment, Beacon Day School has been committed to the competency-based training and supervision of its faculty and staff. This training is initiated early in the tenure of each teacher and behavior interventionist. It is a lengthy process, however, it provides for quality educational care. Staff members are thoroughly screened in order to assure their commitment to the educational process. Consistent application of the educational, therapeutic and behavioral programs across classroom, home and community environments is the foundation of Beacon Day School.
Collaboration is a key element to success at Beacon Day School. Teamwork and a proactive effort facilitate a student-focused, individualized educational program. This process increases positive conflict resolution outcomes.
Beacon Day School's organizational structure is based upon:
- A consistent approach
- Initial and continuous in-service training that is competency based
- Every faculty and staff member’s commitment to Beacon Day School philosophy
- Family and community involvement
- Periodic organizational review that enhances productivity and success
