Frankie

Frankie started at The Victory School at the age of 6. He had little to no discernable vocals and no sign language. Over the past 6 years Frankie has transitioned from a 1:1 student teacher ratio to a 2:1 student teacher ratio. He has also acquired many life skills that will expand his independence such as preparing his favorite tuna sandwich, watering a garden or dialing his mother’s phone number on the telephone. Frankie’s vocals and sign language repertoire has also expanded. Frankie now has over 30 signs and 5 words with which he can communicate his wants as well as comment on his environment. Frankie continues to excel in his daily living skills and functional academics

Parker has left our school for an inclusive program that includes children with disabilities and their typically developing peers. He is doing wonderfully and had a smooth transition. The Victory School is very proud of Parkers success.

Parker G

Parker G. was only 3 years old when he joined TVS in 2008. At his evaluation he only spoke one or two words. He was very cautious of his environment and needed a lot help with transitions. The Verbal behavior techniques used at The Victory School emphasize the learner as a speaker not just a listener, Parker quickly became a chatter box. He even made friends and enjoyed playing chase on the playground. Parker has left our school for an inclusive program that includes children with disabilities and their typically developing peers. He is doing wonderfully and had a smooth transition. The Victory School is very proud of Parkers success.

Most of the students have learned the concept of personal space, now being able to all work together at one table without complaining and instead embracing having each other’s company. Each day, our students surprise us with a different achievement.

April Making Friends

At the “Making Friends” After School Program for the Victory School there have been many successful moments for each of our students this year. They have all shown great progress and enhanced many different life skills at our program. During our busy afternoon, we teachers have found that for this last quarter of the school year, our students have shown most improvement during Art and Sensory time. Art and Sensory comes right after Culinary Arts. Early on in the school year, the students lingered after Culinary Arts needing much prompting to move onto the next task of Art and Sensory. Now, they are engaged and excited for Art and Sensory time. The students help pick up their food and place mats, wipe down the table with antibacterial wipes and help set up for Art. With little prompting, some of our students follow through with the directions given by their teachers such as “let’s get the markers and crayons” or “let’s get the chalk for chalk time”. The students at our program have developed individually as well as a group. They use their sharing and social skills, asking nicely to borrow art tools from their peers. Most of the students have learned the concept of personal space, now being able to all work together at one table without complaining and instead embracing having each other’s company.

The “Making Friends” Summer Camp Program experienced several success stories during the Summer of 2010. One of the success stories that must be shared involves a 9 year old boy, with Autism, and a group of boys his age that he became really good friends with this summer.

According to the parents of the 9 year old boy, he has had difficulty interacting and building relationships with children his age due to the fact that he is unable to speak, has limited communication skills (child uses 3-4 signs for making basic requests), and displays behavior difficulties that often interfere with appropriate socialization.

While attending the “Making Friends Summer Camp”, the 9 year old boy accomplished (what the name of the camp illustrates) “making friends.” With the support of his summer camp teachers, he was able to learn to join his peers in all of the scheduled activities.

By mid way through the summer, he required minimal prompting to interact/engage in activities with his new friends. By the end of the summer, he would independently join his friends in playing kickball, musical chairs, miniature bowling and freeze tag. He made a lot of friends this summer and made extraordinary progress with his social skills and fitness programs. In addition, he acquired several new signs, including the sign for break, which enabled this boy to appropriately and for a break when necessary, resulting in a decrease of maladaptive escape behaviors and increase of appropriate social and communication skills.
