The MRC-NECC Preschool classrooms serve children with Autism Spectrum Disorders from 4 to 6 years old and the Day School classrooms serve children from 7 to 14 years old. Each classroom serves 6 – 8 children. Preschool children spend much of each school day receiving intensive 1:1 instruction. Instruction is also provided in small groups (e.g., circle time, OT group, and library).
Each classroom has playground, gym and swim time, plus Arabic and Islamic instruction in specialized classrooms lead by Arabic-speaking teachers. For Day School students, greater emphasis is placed on pre-vocational and vocational preparation, and community-based learning and activities. All MRC-NECC Preschool and Day School students use ACE® curriculum.
