The National Association of Private Special Education Centers (NAPSEC) has awarded The Monarch School with its 2014 NAPSEC Award for Leadership & Innovation in Special Education.
The Monarch School received this award for demonstrating positive results through data collection, research and documented change which has resulted in new methods for program operations.
The Monarch School was honored for its dedication to providing an innovative, therapeutic education for individuals with neurological differences—such as those associated with autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder, learning disabilities, Tourette Syndrome, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, traumatic brain injury and seizure disorders.
Based on the criteria, The Monarch School was lauded for its efforts and teaching methods. Specifically, The Monarch School’s unique focus on four core goals exhibits a new and unique application of best practices in special education.
Those four goal areas include: Self-regulation and Self-awareness, Executive functions, Relationship development, and Academic and Professional competence.
