Class Structure

Our small class sizes are designed to meet the individual needs of every student. Students are assigned to a classroom based on age and individual needs. Classrooms are set up to include visual and communication supports readily available to all students. Each classroom consists of a Special Education Teacher, Teacher Assistant, and Direct Support Professional.


Chileda uses a special education curriculum for instruction in math, reading, writing, science, social studies, life skills, and social skills. Chileda also does benchmark assessments at least 3 times per year and progress monitoring twice a month within the online curriculum. Symbol supports are used throughout the curriculum. Chileda’s educational focus is on functional skill development. Curricular areas are implemented in the community when appropriate and instructed with real objects in natural environments. Students are encouraged to participate in IEP meetings; to gain a better understanding of their program, and indicate outcomes that are meaningful to them in regards to their personal rights and development (e.g. having access to their own money, selecting their own clothes).

Student Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying Policy

Chileda is committed to a safe and civil educational environment for all clients, employees, volunteers, and patrons, free from harassment, intimidation or bullying. Chileda also serves children who were not able to be maintained in their home and educational setting due to significant behavioral and cognitive challenges. Due to this, while student-to-student bullying is taken very seriously, we also take into consideration the individual needs and skill deficits when addressing bullying. Often times what may appear as “bullying” is a skill deficit requiring teaching appropriate social skills.

Student harassment, intimidation, and bullying can be reported to the Lead Client’s Rights Specialist at 608-782-6480 ext 226 or KateL@Chileda.Org.
