When appropriate, students are given the opportunity to spend time in a school environment other than their own in order to experience things that come with a more traditional classroom: larger group instruction, less individualization, longer periods of work, and more social interaction.
NYC Autism Charter School staff accompany students into these classrooms and work collaboratively with receiving teachers to ensure a good fit. As students are successful, time in inclusion may be increased — possibly even leading (over time) to a full transition into a less restrictive educational environment.
