Firefly’s School Age Programs, a Center-Based program are for children and young adults ages 7 to 21 years old, with our Primary Program serving children ages 7 to 13 and our Secondary Program serving individuals ages 14 to 18 years old. In addition, we have a Young Adult Program serving individuals ages 18 to 21 years old.
Our specialized programs identify each student’s individualized strengths and needs across multiple developmental areas including social, emotional, behavioral, language/communication, academics, and adaptive/life skills. Individual goals are created from a strength and needs assessment. Each goal includes multiple learning objects which are targeted daily. Progress on the objectives is assessed regularly. Children and young adults are taught how to learn from peers, how to work cooperatively with peers and how to find adaptive ways to communicate.
