Thinking Thursday

This series of posts are about how we are continuing to learn and discover during the current situation. For example, The School at Springbrook has created fun new ways to deliver educational programming in campus residential houses. Teachers, Therapists, and Direct Support Staff are working together to make sure that students maintain the the skills they have developed while a traditional class environment is unavailable. We are proud of the adaptability of these inventive professionals to provide support, and every Thinking Thursday we will share a way that our amazing team of educators is doing just that!
