“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.”
– Ignacio Estrada
The CVES Special Education Division believes that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature intellectually, emotionally, physically, and socially despite challenges and obstacles.
Children learn in different ways but, all children can learn. Children who have physical, emotional, or learning differences may struggle in traditional academic settings leading to a negative attitude toward learning and school in general. It is our expertise that allows us to understand, develop, and provide programming to meet the unique needs of each learner in order to meet their potential by providing an environment that is safe, supportive, and inspirational.
Providing high quality, unique programs and services which go beyond the basic academic curricula in order to open pathways to successes for students. Programs and services are constantly revised and evolving in order to address new requirements, technologies, and the changing needs of our student population.
At CVES, we take pride in helping children experience the excitement in the process of learning and producing high quality work along with the celebration of meeting goals.
Programs are designed to meet a variety of NYS requirements for graduation:
