Is Hallen School Right For My Child?
The Hallen School may be the ideal setting for your child. We offer many services: Speech and Language, Counseling, and Occupational Therapy. In addition to our special courses, such as Art, Health, Music and Physical Education, we implement the TEACCH program for children who are diagnosed to have characteristics found on the Autism Spectrum. Many of our students participate in the Regents Exam as classes specifically designed for the Regents Exams are offered here.
Diplomas and Credentials
As our students grow older, the focus of education turns to success after The Hallen School.
Transition planning (required at age 15), which includes the development of a Career plan, forms the basis of New York's new High School Credential option for Students with Disabilities. The new Career Development an Occupational Studies (CDOS) Commencement Credential aligns with the existing programs that give Hallen students real life work experience.
The Book Nook program and the STARS (Student Training in a Retail Store) program are functional stores located in the school. Students are able to participate in these programs as well as other work based learning opportunities in area businesses. The Hallen School has established and maintained several job shadowing, community service and internships working with our community partners. (See Pre Vocational Programs)
Years of successful interventions for students from New York City and Westchester County spiral the school’s reputation for excellence in meeting students special needs.
