Our goal is to teach students the skills necessary to transition them, as appropriate, back to a less restrictive environment within their home school districts, higher education, competitive employment and/or independent living. Teachers assess the student, create individualized IEP goals and teach to their strengths and needs in an intensive teaching environment and small group instruction. All targets for students are individualized with real time data driving programmatic and intervention changes. Students who attend the Merakey Education Centers have an individualized program book and student profile which are tools utilized by teaching and support staff.

Eclipse, Teach Me Language, Discrete Trial, Verbal Behavior and Flash are specific methods utilized to teach students.
