MISSIONThe Bridge School is an organization dedicated to ensuring that children with severe speech and physical impairments achieve full participation in their communities through the use of assistive technology and the development, implementation and dissemination of innovative educational strategies.
STAFFING AND PROFESSIONAL SUPPORTA team-teaching approach pairs a special education teacher and a speech-language pathologist, both with expertise in AAC and computer-assisted instruction, to develop and implement a communication-based curriculum. A small class size is maintained, with a teaching staff to student ratio of 1:2.
Occupational therapy and/or rehabilitation engineering consultation ensures that seating, positioning, access to technology, and mobility issues are coordinated with the child's direct service provider. Movement and dance therapy are provided by a physical therapist on a weekly basis.
Vision consultation is available for the adaptation of learning materials to assist students with visual impairments.
SITEThe Bridge School is located on an integrated site in the Hillsborough School District, located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Bridge School shares this site with a preschool and public elementary and middle schools. Bridge School students are involved in social and academic mainstreaming on-site, in addition to community integration experiences.
