The goal of Oakstone Community School (“OCS”) is to provide education for children with autism spectrum disorder and other disabilities in a smaller instructional environment, with an emphasis on academic, social, and behavioral support. OCS also endeavors to provide meaningful social interaction between all children by increasing their awareness and tolerance for individual differences, while developing academic competency. OCS works diligently to support children as they develop social, behavioral, and learning behaviors.
All children should be viewed in terms of their strengths and their capabilities for learning. Further, these children will not be approached as having a cognitive disorder, but rather a multi-sensory system disorder. Specifically, interference occurs in the input, processing, and appropriate response to information via the child’s sensory systems. Therefore, when intervention is applied to deficits in the functions of the sensory systems, learning occurs.
Please Note: On June 18, 2021, Governor Mike DeWine declared an end to the state of emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic which had been in place since March 13, 2021. The end of the state of emergency also ends the ability for the Oakstone Community School Board to meet remotely. Therefore, the Oakstone Community School Board will resume in-person meetings beginning with our next monthly meeting.
The next meeting of the Board of Directors will be on Thursday, July 22, 2021 at 6:00pm.
