Preschool Testing at Oakridge

Submitted by teresa.gordon on Mon, 02/10/2014 - 14:03

Every Monday Oakridge School buzzes with the pitter patter of small feet.  On Mondays Audiologist Dallin Millington, tests the hearing and vision of preschool aged children. Dixie Spressor and Norma Goddard are also on hand to assess cognitive skills.   This is the first stop in the process to see if a child qualifies for Special Ed services.  Nebo School District provides pre-school service at no charge to developmentally delayed eligible children with severe disabilites. District preschools are only for students with disabilites unless parents choose to pay tution or attend Title 1.

Last week a group of students and their teachers visited Landmark High school to give the Latinos in Action and Leadership classes a great "Big Thank You" for the gifts they brought the students of Oakridge at Christmas. The kindness and generosity that was given to our students was overwhelming. Again, Thank You from the bottom of our hearts.

Every Friday the students at Oakridge take a field trip. The students are bussed to BYU or to the Provo Rec Center. They bowl, swim and excersie. These activities help with fine and gross motor skills.  These field trips expose our students to the outside world where they benefit from interaction with the general public. Not only are they being taught life and social skills but independance as well.
