The Multiple Access Points Program (MAPP) serves students from ages 3 - 22 in various settings who require specific accommodations or adaptations to access the curriculum. Students served by MAPP are Deaf students with additional disabilities, such as DeafBlindness, autism, intellectual disabilities, language deprivation, and developmental delays. A number of the core MAPP teachers are also certified in special education.
The most appropriate placements/casses are determined by the IEP team which, depends on the needs of the individual student. This may be a substantially separate classroom, inclusion wtih deaf peers, consultation with specialists, one-on-one support. MAPP works towards readiness to mastery as directly related to development of necessary life skills including self-advocacy, personal, social, academic, and vocational competencies. MAPP strives to provide students with real life skills and opportunities to practie and apply those skills in the community through field trips, field training, work placement opportunities, and more.
