At ASD, the classroom experience extends beyond our campus, as demonstrated above by a student participating in our Classroom of the Sea project.
The American School for the Deaf Residential Life Program is licensed by the CT Department of Children and Families. The program serves students from Kindergarten through High School. Residential students reside on campus 5 - 6 days a week, depending on the distance of their home community. Residential Counselors support students in a learning environment by offering a variety of life skills based programs and activities, where students will practice how to cook, budget, develop positive leisure skills, and engage in meaningful and accessible off-campus activities. Our Residential Life Program is infused with the Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) framework, and is committed to addressing students’ developmental needs and interests through a variety of coordinated services. In addition, academic support is provided through an after school tutoring program. The goal is for students to feel at home, and to believe that they are ALL ways able!
