Strength-Based Programs

Our programs at Spectrum Tech Trade School, Village, and Training Center focus on the strengths, interests, and capabilities of neurodivergent individuals, rather than defining them by their challenges or differences from neurotypical norms, thereby enhancing their learning experiences and outcomes. We take a person-centered approach, weaving a tapestry of highly individualized educational strategies, intensive therapeutic services, and trauma-informed mental health supports, while promoting dignity and well-being ensuring safety and happiness. Our dynamic learning environment is exceptionally personalized to leverage an individual’s strengths, learning styles, and interests, and encourages collaboration and the participation of the individual learner and their family in creating a flexible, malleable, and easily adaptable program that celebrates their uniqueness, and meets their specific learning style and social emotional needs. Our model is designed to both support and challenge the people we serve so they can reach their potential and become lifelong learners. This personalized approach helps students engage more deeply with the material and fosters a positive learning environment. We focus on goals that are built around what the student can do, using their abilities to address their weakness, and support their learning through co-treatment from our multi-disciplinary team. Through these strength-based programs our pledge is to build the learners self-assurance by setting small attainable goals and encourage them to explore their passion, which fosters inclusion, develops self-efficacy, increases engagement, and improves over all well-being. Our vocational programs utilize experiential learning activities that allow students to apply their strengths in real-world contexts and develop confidence in their abilities and foster a growth mindset. At Spectrum Tech Trade School, Village, and Training Center we know by focusing on students’ strengths, we can create a more inclusive and supportive learning environment that promotes academic success and personal growth.
