League School offers 12-month programming. From September to June we follow the NYC Department of Education calendar and then offer a 6-week summer program during July and August. Our school staff are a multidisciplinary team of highly trained and compassionate special education teachers, psychiatrists, clinical social workers, clinical psychologists, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, art therapists, and dance movement therapists.
To qualify for placement in our program students must have:
- An IEP classification of Emotional Disturbance or Autism
- Approval for a Non Public School setting
The Admissions Process
We begin with a review of the student's educational and clinical reports. If there is an appropriate opening for the student, we'll schedule an initial intake screening.
During the intake screening the student spends time in a classroom and meets with a clinician for a behavioral screening. At the same time, the parent or caregiver meets with a clinican who provides information about our program and gathers a full psychosocial history of the student.
If our program can serve the student's needs, we'll invite you back for a full-day screening. During the screening they will meet with a psychiatrist and speech/language pathologist. The student will also spend more time in the classroom. If we are unable to meet students’ needs in our program we will work with you to identify an appropriate placement.
