B8 is a Severely Cognitive Impaired classroom with students ages fifteen through twenty-six. Few of our students communicate effectively, the classroom provides continuous opportunities to facilitate communication through words, signs, pictures, or augmentative devices throughout all activities.  Some of the key areas concentrated on are:

  • Socialization
  • Tactile Stimulation
  • Compliance
  • Table work-hand eye coordination
  • Self-help skills (eating, grooming, and hygiene)


There is a high concentration on positive human interaction in this classroom through structured group activities such as swimming, art, music therapy, cooking, art, computer, library, and community-based outings. Students also learn and maintain skills associated with daily living such as self-care, daily jobs, and leisure skills. Classroom purpose focuses on assisting students in achieving to their highest level of ability with their communication, socialization, sensory-motor, and academic goals.
