HIGH SCHOOL SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER
HIGH SCHOOL SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER WANTED IMMEDIATELY SEPTEMBER 2017
Soaring Eagle Academy an ISBE approved therapeutic day school in Lombard, IL is seeking a full time HIGH SCHOOL SPECIAL EDUCATION TEACHER, starting September 2017 to join our growing staff and student body. The Academy was founded by three Speech Language Pathologists, with an accumulation of over 80 years experience serving children and families with Autism and other related disorders. The academic and social programming is developed, expanded and supported by these three founders and SEA Program Director. We are the only school of its kind to utilize a Developmental Language approach implementing principles of the DIR® Floortime model, to understanding and supporting students’ social, emotional and academic development. This is a unique opportunity to do cutting edge work with dedicated support staff including SLP, OT, Mental Health, fellow teachers and 1:1 teacher assistants assigned to each student, who understand and support developmental language, sensory processing strategies, emotional development and how these impact children with autism. We believe that the “behaviors” others see as impacting education for these students are a result of their lack of comprehension, inability to communicate, challenges in processing sensory information from their environment and staying regulated around a broad range of emotions. With appropriate language based strategies, emotional and sensory supports, and an individualized, multi-sensory, engaging and meaningful curriculum, our students are blossoming. Join our team!
