The mission of Miriam School is to encourage children with complex learning disabilities to recognize and successfully meet their potential. We accomplish this mission by creating a community where students thrive both academically and socially.
At Miriam School, learning is intentional, collaborative, and personalized; designed to meet the unique social, emotional, physical, and academic needs of each student. Our team of dedicated educators choose to teach at Miriam School because they love working with students who learn differently.
The Miriam School Essential Skills Guide provides a concise overview of areas of instruction emphasized in the educational program. This curriculum, in combination with each student’s Individual Education Plan (I.E.P.), forms the foundation of the Miriam School Program.
Miriam uses a variety of methods and instructional tools to meet the individual learning styles of our students. Based on the needs of the student, a student’s curriculum might include instruction using one or more of the following programs:
The S.P.I.R.E. Reading Program integrates phonological awareness, phonics, handwriting, fluency, vocabulary, spelling and comprehension in an instructional design based on how struggling readers learn. Each S.P.I.R.E. lesson employs ten steps that enhance student learning and memory by engaging multisensory pathways to the brain in rapid succession. | More About S.P.I.R.E.
