Sample Day


Setting The Day Up For Success

Each day at The Hope School is built around addressing the underlying root causes of a student’s behavioral challenges. This includes activities to develop specific brain regions that influence behavior and tools to change previously ingrained patterns into more healthy ways of coping. These skills would be worked on individually, as well as within a group environment.


The Hope School Model is designed to nurture a student’s internal motivation by offering safety within a radically accepting and supportive environment, with freedom given for mistakes, purposely avoiding a performance based focus.

Neurodevelopmental Activities

Throughout the day, we implement a variety of physical activities to stimulate specific brain regions and target any neurodevelopmental dysregulation. Activities and areas of focus include:

  • Neurofeedback Training

  • Integrated Listening Systems

  • Sensory Integration Work

  • Processing Work

  • Visual Motor Integration

  • Early Reflex Integration

  • Speech, Physical, and Occupational Therapy

  • Vestibular Activities

  • Gross Motor Activities

  • Tactility Activities

  • Auditory Activities

  • Cross-Lateral Movements

  • Fine Motor Activities


Emotional Behavioral Relational Interventions

Every day offers specific activities, interventions and experiences to help students learn the tools necessary to change previously ingrained maladaptive ways of functioning into more healthy ways of coping. These interventions are delivered both individually, as well as within a group environment. These interventions uphold the integration of the whole child rather than performance-driven metrics. Interventions include:

  • Animal Co-regulation

  • Therapeutic Art

  • Therapeutic Game & Drama

  • Music Therapy

  • Mental Health

  • Processing Groups

  • Individual Counseling

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy

  • Mindfulness

  • Yoga

  • Journaling

  • Zones of Regulation

  • Outdoor Adventure Based Learning


Interactive Academics

Academic achievement is viewed from a Whole Brain – Whole Child perspective. We examine the root cause and specific barrier causing the lack of past academic achievement. The complex interplay between neurodevelopmental strengths and weaknesses, the balance in the brain between critical areas of cognitive processing and academic endeavours, and the emotional behavioral facets are taken into consideration, giving us powerful insight into the best learning approach for each individual learner.

A combination of individual instruction and interactive hands on group learning is then employed to reach specific academic goals. Academics include: 

  • Mathematics 

  • English/Language Arts


Wrap Around Support

The Hope School operates within a collaborative approach through consistent wrap-around support between home and school. This includes regular updates and scheduled calls, nutritional recommendations, activities to implement at home, and in-home observations. We find that lasting change occurs when all parties work together.

Our Beliefs

Our experience shows us that while students want to do well, root neurodevelopmental challenges  create behavioral challenges.
