We are happy to tell you about our special needs school in NJ. Newgrange is a co-educational special education school for children with dyslexia, autism, Aspergers or other learning disabilities. We provide our students with highly specialized educational programs for students ages 7 through 21. Our program focuses on language-based and other learning disabilities being an approved State of New Jersey Department of Education private school that is simultaneously eligible to receive tuition funding from the public school system.
Newgrange faculty members are certified, highly qualified, trained, and experienced in teaching students with learning disabilities. Newgrange students are provided the individualized instruction needed to achieve academic success. The Newgrange staff includes Learning Disability Teacher/Consultants, Speech/Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, and Teachers of the Handicapped, Teachers of Math, Science, Social Studies, Business, Art, Music, and Teachers of Physical Education/Health/Drivers Education. The faculty participates in professional development and continuing education programs on a regular basis. Our specialized training includes: Orton Gillingham, Wilson Language Training®, Developing Metacognitive Skills, LETRS, Project Read, and other multisensory teaching methods.
In addition to daily, intensive remedial instruction for reading in small groups, each student participates in a language enrichment class to ensure that all aspects of the language arts (spelling, writing and oral expression) are addressed daily. The curriculum at Newgrange, aligned with state standards and designed to allow students to satisfy all state graduation requirements, is a unique aspect of our special needs school. In NJ special needs can often fly under the radar or be handled in counterproductive ways. Our reading, language arts, science and social skills programs feature evidence-based instruction. Many students are also assigned individual tutorials for reading or written expression during the week. Mathematics, technology, art, music, world languages, social studies, physical education/health, study and social skills, a range of electives and an active transition program for high school students complete our program of study.
For additional information about the School, please contact our Principal, Bob Hegedus at 609-584-1800, ext. 227.
