Kaplan School is a unique and innovative learning environment offering programs designed to help students reach their fullest potential. This month, we are highlighting the Technological Exploration of Augmentative communication via Movement and Structure (TEAMS) program, a unique way to provide integrated therapies and education through an interdisciplinary approach for students with severe and multiple disabilities. The program focuses on developing communication skills and improving or maintaining physical status through learning centers, including fine motor, sensory, literacy, vision and vocational skills as appropriate. The TEAMS approach ensures a comprehensive instructional plan for students with complex educational and medical needs.
