Willow Program - Special Needs recognized.
The Willow Program is specially designed for Aspire Special Needs students!!
Willow students will have some classes on their own in the motor room, and some classes mixed in with their peer tree (grade) group. Each child who takes part in the Willow Class Options will need to be mom-led throughout their day. This is offered at every campus and has been a successful and fun way to include everyone while also paying attention to any special needs that arise.
Willow parents will receive needed support through Aspire Willow Communication groups, gatherings, and special panel sessions.
Many Aspire students will also take part in the Willow Friends part of our program. This will be a "buddy" program for our Willow students. If your child wants to be a part of this, please check this option during Member Family Registration. This could be helping a Willow in PE, or simply being a reading buddy.
The Willow Program team also has a Partners and Resources list so that Aspire Members have a list of trusted resource recommendations for our group!
