Since its inception, The Bridge School’s long-range planning process has been guided by three key vision elements which we use to judge the relevance and importance of any new programs or projects. In planning for change, we ask the following questions:
Does this project/program:
promote the universal inclusion of children with severe speech and physical impairments?
have an impact on the global community and the potential to reach as many people as possible?
help prepare these children to be active participants in society?
These guiding principles have led us to the next stage in the future of The Bridge School: Bridge to Life
The ultimate goals of Bridge to Life include:
serving individuals with physical and/or communication impairments from birth through adulthood, locally, nationally and globally
providing professional development opportunities in our areas of expertise
contracting with families, agencies and school districts to offer direct services to students with severe physical impairments and complex communication needs to address:
receptive and expressive language
augmentative and alternative communication
Cortical Visual Impairment (CVI)
positioning and seating
access through assistive technology
self-determination and futures planning
Currently we are offering:
CVI assessments and training packages
Receptive and expressive language assessment and therapy
