Individual Education Plans

New Haven will accommodate previously developed IEP’s in order to continue the individualized instruction recommended for our students with special learning needs. We will participate in quarterly goal evaluations with the home district to ensure that the IEP is being followed and that it continues to be a valid document when the student returns to her public school. We have a fully certified special education administrator that will oversee the IEP and tailor the student’s academic program to meet her specific learning style along with the necessary accommodations and modifications required in her classes.

The majority of our students take the SAT or ACT while attending New Haven. College counseling services are also available. Students may receive help with picking colleges and preparing applications. 95% of those who graduate from high school at New Haven go on to college.

Types of Learning Styles Addressed at New Haven Preparing for Each Learning Style

The teachers at New Haven place emphasis on the different learning styles along with the traditional skills of analysis, reason, and sequential problem solving. We design our instruction methods to connect with the various learning styles, using a combination of experience, reflection, conceptualization, and experimentation. New Haven teachers introduce a wide variety of experiential elements into the classroom, such as sound, music, visuals, movement, experience, and discussion. We also employ a variety of assessment techniques by focusing on the development of “whole brain” capabilities.

Visual Learners

Visual Learners: Learn through Seeing

These learners need to see the teacher’s body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a lesson. They tend to prefer sitting at the front of the classroom to avoid visual obstructions (e.g., people’s heads). They may think in pictures and learn best from visual displays including: diagrams, illustrated text books, overhead transparencies, videos, flipcharts and hand-outs. During a lecture or classroom discussion, visual learners often prefer to take detailed notes to absorb the information.

Auditory Learners

Auditory Learners: Learn through Listening

They learn best through verbal lectures, discussions, talking things through and listening to what others have to say. Auditory learners interpret the underlying meanings of speech through listening to tone of voice, pitch, speed and other nuances. Written information may have little meaning until it is heard. These learners often benefit from reading text aloud and using a tape recorder.

Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners

Tactile/Kinesthetic Learners: Learn through Moving, Doing, and Touching

Tactile/Kinesthetic persons learn best through a hands-on approach, actively exploring the physical world around them. They may find it hard to sit still for long periods and may become distracted by their need for activity and exploration.
