ABOUT ROOTED LIFE MONTESSORI'S ACADEMIC THERAPY PROGRAMS
MACAR-MONTESSORI APPLIED TO CHILDREN AT RISK
Historic Montessori Education itself is steeped in Early Childhood Philosophy, Behavioral Psychology, Brain Science and Academic Rigor. However, like our predecessor Dr. Maria Montessori, we at Rooted Life Montessori carefully observe the child to see if additional intervention is necessary to create a successful learner. This “scaffolded” approach to Montessori is ideal for some of our learners, and is called MACAR
Our language therapy program is designed to help develop core language processing skills in children. We belive that a key component in learning ability is the ability to understand and interpret language. If all modalities for learning are intact and strong then learning comes easily and naturally. They take in the learning task readily soaking it up and retaining it “like a sponge”.
Interactive Metronome® (IM) is a technology-based game that improves human timing which is essential for all neurological functions. IM is not only fun, but it is proven to increase cognitive and motor skills. So whether your child loves sports, reading or both, Interactive Metronome can help him/her improve in every area!
ABA Therapy is an umbrella term that covers many styles of teaching/treatment, such as Verbal Behavior (VB), Natural Environment Teaching (NET), and Discrete Trial Training (DTT). ABA professionals mainly work in the areas of behavior reduction or skill acquisition. Children who benefit from ABA are require extensive repetition or directly taught lessons in areas of daily living tasks that are commonly learned and generalized naturally, they are not successful learning and retaining academics on the age-appropriate teacher-student ratio (7-1 toddler or 10-1 primary), and/or they lack age-appropriate social skills, executive functioning skills and/or impulse control.
