Ivymount School Services

Across all of our programs, students receive therapeutic, academic, social and pragmatic skills instruction.  As appropriate, community based instruction, recreational activities, career development and transition services are embedded to support students in achieving their highest level of independence.  

Many students have multiple learning, social, and/or adaptive needs and require a program that includes and integrates academic, social and adaptive skills programming in classrooms with low student/teacher ratios.  Students receive related services determined by their Individualized Education Program (IEP).     Universal Design and assistive technology support student learning to give students access to the general education curriculum.

Students receive related services (speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and counseling) as determined by their IEP.  The clinical services team works with students who demonstrate interfering behaviors by supporting student’s individual learning needs, conducting functional assessment, developing individualized behavior intervention plans, conducting staff training, and monitoring student progress.  Art, music, adapted physical education, library, and technology are offered in all programs.  Each student’s IEP determines the student’s level of participation in statewide assessments and the level of supports and modifications necessary to provide the student access to the general education curriculum of the local school system, and the Maryland College and Career Ready Standards.  Program staff collaborates with families to generalize instruction to the home and community settings.

Ivymount School programs for students ages 18-21 are designed to allow students to match their abilities and interests with community job placements, leading to productive and independent futures. Students acquire pragmatic educational skills, basic and advanced social skills, positive work attitudes and constructive behaviors that will ensure their successful transitions.  
At the time of graduation, students enrolled at Ivymount receive either a high school diploma or certificate of IEP completion as determined by their IEP.
