OUR APPROACH

Therapeutic Approach

The cornerstone of Vanguard ‘s therapeutic program is our emphasis on the research-based method of Social and Emotional Learning (SEL). We recognize that for many of our students, social skills and self-regulation are concepts that must be taught. While students may be book smart, they will not be successful in life without these relational skills. With the support of the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL), we provide every student with practical social-emotional competence assessments to benchmark not only their academic progress but social and emotional as well.

Our goal is to provide each student with the support to be a happy, productive and successful person. We accomplish this through a holistic and therapeutic educational approach with the following focus:

  • Actively teaching social skills necessary for productive relationships
  • Providing regular group therapy
  • Developing coping skills
  • Teaching problem solving
  • Setting consistent limits
  • Clearly communicating expectations clearly
  • Rewarding conscientious hard work and effort
  • Building character, personal responsibility, and accountability
  • Teaching conflict resolution
  • Encouraging self-discipline and responsibility for personal growth
  • Valuing attitude over aptitude

Our mission is to enrich children’s lives by fostering independence, self-esteem, and compassion for others. Every child is valued regardless of diagnosis or challenge. We guide them in a positive direction and create a strong foundation for learning through social, emotional, and academic development.
