Family SUPPORT
Vista Academy is designed for children in the primary grades as an alternative to home schooling.  It is hoped that children will thrive in this environment and learn skills that will help them successfully transition to an integrated school of their choice.
The family is a critical member of the team for each child.  Vista Academy will host IEP conferences and will work with the family to design relevant behavior plans for each child.  The clinical director will refer parents to relevant community services and will incorporate recommendations and strategies uniquely for each child.
