F.A.Q.

Frequently asked questions

Is the school just for children with autism?

No specific diagnosis is required for a child to be enrolled in our school or Communication Clinic.  Students with a variety of developmental disabilities attend The Jericho School.  The label is really not as imperative to us as the individual needs of each child.

Do you include speech and occupational
therapy in your curriculum?

A great deal of our therapy works on articulation and shaping vocal behaviors through successive approximations.  We also work on large motor, fine motor, handwriting and other skills depending upon the students needs.  However, we do not have Speech or Occupational Therapist on staff.

Is The Jericho School a residential facility?

No, The Jericho School is exclusively a day school.

Why is the tuition so high?

Each student has an individualized program provided in a one-to-one or two-to-one environment.  The majority of our operating budget goes directly towards our staff salaries and related staffing costs. The actual cost to provide our intensive individualized programs far exceeds the amount of tuition.

Are there grants or scholarships available?

The John McKay Scholarship may be available for qualifying students through the Department of Education.  You can find out more information by visiting: www.floridaschoolchoice.org

Is there a waiting list?

There is usually a small waiting list for enrollment in The Jericho School. Enrollment openings depend on availability in the classroom appropriate for that student.

Do you provide transportation?

The Jericho School does not provide transportation to or from our school. Parents are responsible for transportation

What is your success rate?

Our emphasis is on each individual student and the success that student can achieve.  We create individualized programs with specific and measurable goals.  Throughout the school year, data is collected and graphed to track the students progress and Progress Reports are sent home on a quarterly basis.  Success is achieved when each student reaches their full potential.

How many years does a child stay at your school?

A student is usually enrolled at The Jericho School one to three years.  We work to equip students with the skills that will make them more successful in a more typical learning environment.  Most students will not have one-to-one instruction for their entire educational career.  Our goal is to give students the intensive individualized instruction that can heighten their ability to gain skills and become good learners.

What are the level of qualifications for your teachers?

The Jericho School recruits teachers with a Bachelors Degree, preferably in education and/or psychology. The initial training is a three-week program. The training begins with didactic material covering Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), Verbal Behavior (VB) and proven teaching techniques. The Jericho School also schedules monthly in-service days to ensure ongoing teacher development.

Do you have policies and procedures for reporting misconduct?

All of the employees and agents of The Jericho School have an obligation and responsibility to report misconduct by Instructional Personnel or School Administrators which affect the health, safety or welfare of a student.

Failure to report misconduct may result in penalties up to termination of employment.
