Curriculum Highlights
The curricular and educational highlights of Kent County Community School and Capital's Delaware Autism Program include academic and nonacademic opportunities, full and partial inclusion, and extracurricular activities. We at KCCS/DAP use the same curricular tools as the district which directly aligned with the Common Core and the Extended Standards for students working through the Alternate Path. To supplement the district curriculum, we utilize Attainment, Frog Street Early Learning Curriculum, Reading Wonders and Unique Learning System (ULS) as an alternate curriculum that is aligned with the Common Core expectations and further aligns with the DCAS Alternate Assessment which is taken in place of the traditional DCAS. The curricular opportunities begin in the preschool program through the student's exit year between the ages of 18-21. The Pyramid Approach to PECS, ABA, Go Math, Positive Behavior Support, functional life skills, and System 44 are but a few that we offer.
