Aftercare & Tutoring

ACCESS takes a team approach to learning, meaning therapists are involved in the day-to-day activities of the classroom and can engage in one-on-one therapy sessions. Academic therapy (specialized tutoring) is available for school-aged individuals with additional learning difficulties. Outpatient therapy services are offered for families who do not attend ACCESS full time. Aftercare services are available at both campuses for an additional fee.

Teaching Methods

ACCESS uses unique, literacy-based curriculum and a multi-sensory approach to learning by engaging all of the senses.

Exciting Projects

ACCESS offers three vocational programs to supplement its curriculum – horticulture, ceramics, and the Vocation Innovation Project. These programs offer a fun way to teach, provide additional therapeutic environments and gain transferable vocational skills.
