HKS Arts and Special Programs

AIDB instructors are consistently credited for their creative and effective teaching skills. It’s just not D 1possible to reach every child with a single approach. Over the years, we have learned that every child can learn; it’s simply a matter of finding the right way to present the material.  Some of these different approaches include a creative arts program designed to stimulate students through visual and tactile activities, motor development and expansion of expressive and receptive language.  Many of our students respond well to music therapy.

Our programs change frequently as our students’ needs change.  We have offered horticulture classes in the past, teaching children and young adults how to raise plants either as a pleasant hobby or as a vocational skill.  Students learn how to manage IMG_0155money and see how a small business succeeds through our school store, which offers small gift items and homemade snacks to people on campus.
We boast an extensive creative arts program is which is designed to stimulate students through visual and tactile activities, motor development and expansion of expressive and receptive language. Students also have the opportunity to participate in music therapy and are trained in assistive technology.
