Welcome to Potential Development: Empowering Students with Autism

At Potential Development, we are committed to providing a supportive and enriching learning environment for students with autism. Our curriculum is designed to meet the unique needs of each individual learner while adhering to the highest educational standards set forth by the state of Ohio.

Our Curriculum Approach

  • Ohio Academic Content Standards: Our curriculum aligns with the Ohio Academic Content Standards to ensure that our students receive a well-rounded education that prepares them for success in various aspects of life. We focus on academic subjects such as language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies, tailored to the specific abilities and learning styles of students with autism.
  • Individualized Education Plans (IEPs): Our team of dedicated educators collaborates with families and specialists to develop comprehensive Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) that address each student’s strengths, challenges, and goals. These personalized plans guide our teaching methods and help students reach their full potential.
  • Social and Emotional Learning (SEL): We recognize the importance of social and emotional development for students with autism. Our curriculum integrates SEL activities and lessons to help students build meaningful relationships, improve communication skills, and manage their emotions effectively.
  • Functional Life Skills: Preparing students for independent living is a vital aspect of our curriculum. We offer comprehensive training in essential life skills such as self-care, hygiene, cooking, money management, and community interaction. These skills empower our students to lead fulfilling lives beyond the classroom.
  • Sensory Integration: Our curriculum includes sensory integration techniques to create a sensory-friendly learning environment. We embrace sensory tools and activities that promote self-regulation and help students manage sensory sensitivities.

Parent and Guardian Collaboration

At Potential Development, we believe that a strong partnership between educators, parents, and guardians is essential for the success of our students. Regular communication, progress updates, and collaborative goal-setting ensure that everyone is working together to support the growth and development of each student.
