Each Student Receives Individualized Therapeutic and Educational Services

School_Sidebar_SchPrgrm.jpgInnovative programming includes life skills, music and art, animal-assisted therapy programs, and outdoor education, all based in experiential learning.

Green Chimneys School serves special needs students from over 80 school districts across New York State and parts of Connecticut, with a majority coming from Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties. Students are typically enrolled for two or more years for therapeutic and educational services, and many return to their home school district.

Green Chimneys School provides a curriculum that is structured according to each child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) and delivered within a comprehensive, therapeutic environment with a student-to-staff ratio of 12:1:2 or 8:1:2. The educational, physical, emotional and behavioral needs of the individual learner are considered and accommodated following comprehensive assessments. Our students are immersed in experiences that help to identify, and build upon their strengths.

Green Chimneys, together with families, collaborates with each child’s home school district through the Committee on Special Education (CSE) to ensure that educational and related services goals are met, including programs to address remedial or specialized learning needs. A professional staff (social workers, counselors, teachers, psychologists, nurses, speech pathologists, occupational therapists) that is familiar with the sometimes complex needs of students in a special education setting guide children toward making constructive choices and building upon their individual strengths, in collaboration with their families.
