Teenagers with disabilities assist teachers at elementary school

The Downside

Little information available

The Jeffrey M. Rapport School for Career Development serves over 500 special needs students age 14-21 including children with emotional disturbances, learning disabilities, or developmental delays. While some students come from different areas of New York City, the majority of students live in the area of the school according to the Comprehensive Education Plan (CEP).  The schools pedagogy was well-developed on its Quality Review, the highest possible ranking.

The school provides work experiences enabling students to gain a variety of skills, according to the Quality Review. Students work in food service at Fordham Lincoln Center, Fordham Rose Hill, and Manhattan College; and carry out various tasks in nursing homes such as Daughters of Jacob and Kings Harbor Multicare Center; and perform clerical tasks at Lincoln Medical Center. However, what emerges as the most unique to the High School X754 is the teacher assistant program at a general education school in which students assist the classroom staff in working with elementary school children with a variety of disabilities, the Quality Review said.
