- Speech and Language
Speech and Language is offered individually or in small group sessions with our on-campus
speech pathologists. This program provides our students with evidence-based strategies that
are directly related to the curriculum as well as real life that builds their communication skills and
strengthens their self-awareness and self-esteem in the process. The Speech and Language
Program connects and supports other areas by collaboration with teachers and other
professionals, providing push-in classroom services and attending parent teachers conferences.
The Speech and Language Program utilizes strategies like Visualizing and Verbalizing and apps
that specifically target this area.
- Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy can lead to benefits for The Craig School students, especially for children
with learning and attentional difficulties. Our on-campus occupational therapists, from P.G.
Chambers School in Cedar Knolls, work with students in a private therapy setting or they push-
in to the classroom and recommend sensory tools for the students who have difficulties focusing
in the classroom. Occupational therapists use strategies, interventions, adaptations and
innovative techniques to improve a student’s fine motor skills, motor coordination, visual
perceptual skills, executive functioning skills and sensory processing skills. Therapists consult
with teachers; observe in various classrooms, during lunchtime, recess time and in gym class in
order to provide strategies so that the students can succeed.
