At Spero Center students are educated through individualized curriculum tailored to their educational needs. They learn coping skills and strategies with the goal of ultimately successfully transitioning back to their school district of origin.
Our certified special education teachers develop individualized curriculum consistent with each student’s learning and mental health needs. Teachers conduct ongoing assessments on student progress towards meeting IEP goals and connect regularly with the student’s district of origin to share updates.
Counseling services are provided by licensed mental health professionals who work closely with each student’s outside treatment provider and family to ensure continuity of care. Each student referred to Spero Center is evaluated individually with a support plan that is designed specifically to meet their unique needs. Every Spero student has the opportunity to meet with their counselor as often as five days per week. These counselors work closely with our special education teachers, outreach coordinators, and other staff to ensure a holistic therapeutic approach is integrated into every aspect of the Spero experience.
Spero Center staff work closely with each student’s school and district of origin as well as with their mental health treatment provider. Ongoing engagement among students and their families, their school and district of origin and their treatment provider throughout the full duration of a student’s Spero Center enrollment is paramount to the student’s successful reintegration at their “home” school. Spero works to both prepare students to return to their home schools and also prepare the school and community to successfully support the student when they return.
Staff at Spero Center include both educators and licensed mental health practitioners, uniquely suited to support students in need of specific mental health care. Our staff work in partnership with school districts to ensure that educational requirements are met specific to each student, while taking care of their mental health needs.
