Individual attention, patience and consistency... just what kids need.

July 27, 2018

What do you see when you look at some of our pictures of what we do here at Crossroads?

Of course you see cute kids, right? And awesome activities, lessons, settings created for the children, true?

But, what in particular do you notice about the staff-to-student interactions? Can you recognize from the pictures the phenomenal individual attention each and every child receives throughout his or her day?

Kids have different ways of learning, right? So, learning here is individualized. The way a child is helped is individualized, based upon assessment of what will help them learn and make gains.  Even within a group setting, with the same project to work on, children may be working on different pieces or skills, important for them right then.

 Just the other day, the mom of one of our preschoolers said she is starting her younger child here for childcare come fall. “It’s not that they’re bad, they’re not, they’re really good,” she said of her daughter’s current daycare setting., “but they don’t have the level of staffing there, and they couldn’t handle (her other child) for the few months he was there.”


This Mom is not alone. In fact, parents and school districts alike have shared that the focus on the children here, and on what each student needs is such an important factor to them.

The things that set Crossroads apart are the things that help the children make gains, learn skills, and go on to experience real success in their very real lives. Individual attention is provided for each child according to his or her needs. Consistency throughout the team – including the families – is the “rule of law,” and ABA methods are what the school stands on. Add to all of that a huge amount of patience and love – for the children and for each other – and dedication to the school itself.  That’s what many parents see when they choose a setting for their children that they can trust, both for safety and for progress with the skills that can be most challenging, but necessary in life.

When you look at our pictures, in addition to seeing the cuteness of the children and the creativity of the activities and lessons, recognize the patience of the staff members, the attention to the student and what he or she is doing at the moment and how to get him or her to the next level in progressing towards his or her goals.
