Catapult Learning in Arizona
Partnering with Districts and Schools across Arizona
All children deserve an education that goes beyond academics and enables them to grow into responsible, self-sufficient adults. In Arizona, Catapult Learning has partnered with schools districts to provide specialized education programming for students who have not found success in the traditional classroom due to a variety of intensive special needs. In our AdvancED accredited schools, our certified teachers and staff provide individualized academic and behavioral interventions with an innovative learning approach, individualized attention, and all the necessary support services students need to overcome barriers to education.
Our flexible Academic Rotational Model coupled with behavioral and life skills programming allow us to fully accommodate students with all forms of learning challenges. Through the use of various academic and behavioral assessments we are able to properly identify unique learning challenges and create effective, multifaceted and individualized education plans for our students. The goal of all plans is to improve the learning, living and life potential for our students of all ages.
Through collaboration with a student’s IEP team, we are able to choose the correct most appropriate learning model based on a given student’s present levels of performance, social capabilities, motor coordination, communication development, and ability to learn in a group setting. No matter the educational track, our goal is to produce meaningful and measurable advancements in each student’s behavioral, academic, and social development.
Rooted in strong collaboration and communication between school districts and Catapult Learning, our In-District Classrooms serve students in classrooms within a school or other district building utilizing our flexible individualized Academic Rotational and B.E.S.T. models. By creating these opportunities in your district, you will be able to provide a continuum of services to your students in their local community while still offering them the personalized attention they require to succeed.
With our highly structured therapeutic learning environment you will be meeting your students’ intensive needs inside your district schools, so you are not only reducing tuition and transportation costs, but increasing your students’ opportunity to participate in general education. For your students, we aim to improve outcomes academically and behaviorally.
Through our classrooms, Catapult Learning’s certified and qualified staff works in unison with district special education and general education teachers to ensure that your students receive the maximum benefit from both district resources and our program as well as having the opportunity to return to their general education classroom when appropriate.. Students will have direct access to their district’s curriculum, equipment, and amenities as they benefit from our targeted, research-based interventions. In addition, students will have the opportunity to participate in daily school-wide activities and events (e.g., lunch, recess, and extracurricular activities), as well as benefit from peer interaction with the school population.
Serving Students with Autism Spectrum Disorders
In Arizona, nearly 1 in 10 students (according to the Arizona Department of Education) receiving special education services are on the autism spectrum. Autism presents differently in every child which is why Catapult Learning believes that there’s no “one size fits all” approach to education. Our goal is to support our students in developing the skills necessary to live the most achievable independent lifestyle which may or may not include independent living, vocational training which leads to employment, and/or transitioning to a more traditional academic classroom setting.
