ACCESS Program

Accessing Core Curriculum Every day for School Success
The Glover and Bell Schools Grades Pre-K through 3


The ACCESS Program is a full day special education program for students in Pre-K through grade 3 developed to service the needs of students diagnosed primarily with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Communication, functional academics, social development and self-help skills are the main focus of the ACCESS Learning Program. As students demonstrate progress in their acquisition of social and readiness skills, they are introduced to activities (both social and academic) involving typical peer interaction to target generalization of skills within the general education environment.
