Chrysalis School is a private K-12 school with two sites in Woodinville. They have a diverse student body ranging from students who are pursuing sports/arts careers and need a flexible schedule to students with severe physical handicaps who cannot sustain a full day at school. They create a program that fits the academic and social needs of each and every student and their family. Students are scheduled 2 ? 5 days a week depending on the combination of group classes and individual appointments. Individual Appointments: Each student is assigned a consulting teacher with whom they meet weekly. Those with a behavior challenge can opt to participate in all individual classes initially. However, this school is not equipped to deal with anger and oppositionality. Group Classes: generally 8-12 students, multi-aged, based on personalities, social maturity, and abilities, and very hands on in nature. In the group classes they strive to provide an environment where students are encouraged to ask questions, practice the skills of listening, appreciate diversity of opinion, and develop empathy and compassion. Some examples of group class offerings are Humanities, Science, Yearbook, Cooking, Art, and Drama. Chrysalis has served individuals with brain injury, but the successful student would be one who would respond to a mentoring type of relationship with teachers. They do not do consistent repetition for those with memory issues. That would need to be provided by the parents. Open enrollment, depending upon age and groups available.

CHILD is a private school is designed to accommodate children with learning differences in a small therapeutic environment. They have seven classrooms for ages 6-18, grouped by their strengths and weaknesses. In each classroom they have a lead teacher and some 1:1 aides depending upon the children?s needs. They focus on self-regulation, relationship, building self-esteem and resilience. They follow Collaborative Problem Solving (Ross Greene), defining specific cognitive, behavioral and emotional deficits of individual students and choosing the most important to focus on. They use empathy, help students communicate what they need and work to generalize positive behaviors. They do use natural consequences and stop activities if students aren?t acting in a safe manner. There are prevention staff for escalated moments and prevention techniques. The school also has a counselor, SLP and OT. The school supports open communication and team meetings, and consistency across environments, including bus drivers. They have experience with brain injured students, and would tailor their program to the students? needs. CHILD serves 19 school districts ranging from Tacoma to Marysville and Bainbridge. The goal is to have the student learn skills in 2 to 3 years and then return to the district, although some students never are able to return. Rolling admissions can take a few months. New students spend several hours being assessed before admission. Tours available.
