AZACS is launching the first autism-focused Online K-8 School in the 2021-22 school year. Emulating the AZACS in-person education models, the AZACS Online K-8 School will offer:

 

 

The Academic Program for students working at or near grade level.

The Modified Academic Program for students with mild developmental delays and, 

The Functional Academic Program for students with intensive needs.

 

Students will complete grade appropriate, engaging lessons with access to tools that support learning including text to speech, audio and translation, text and picture dictionaries, workbooks (K-5) and more. Students will engage with their Virtual Teacher weekly and attend small group sessions with their Learning Success Coach throughout the week. Students in grades 6-8 have access to Virtual Teachers and tutoring on a flexible schedule and will complete digital courses in English, math, science, social studies, fine arts and electives. Attending the Online K-8 school requires strong collaboration between parents, caregivers, and the AZACS education team.  The collaboration will focus on students’ IEP goals and the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to help students overcome behavioral and communication challenges to be successful in a virtual educational environment.  All programs are supported by speech therapists, occupational therapists and behavior specialists if those services are included in the student's IEP.
