Newport Mesa Unified School District Logo

Program Overview: 
NMUSD’s young learners with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) learn side-by-side with their neighborhood,  same-aged peers in structured, caring preschool  classrooms. The goal of the program is for all  of our young learners to achieve kindergarten readiness. The  focus of each classroom is multi-dimensional across the  pre-academic, social, self-help, and motor domains.  Language and beginning literacy skills, including  phonological awareness and alphabet knowledge, is  emphasized. Social and emotional independence is  fostered through direct teaching and cooperative play. We strive to prepare all learners for a successful  kindergarten experience!       Each program has one credentialed special education teacher with a Master’s degree and two NMUSD trained Behavior Interventionists. The program uses a variety of preschool curriculum and Applied Behavior  Analysis (ABA) teaching methodology.
