When parents and referral sources call me to inquire about our program, I often get asked, “What does a typical day look like?" I always wanted to give the most accurate picture, but being busy with admissions tasks, there is little time just to shadow children. So, I asked Pam Nolan, the newly appointed Latham Program Director, if she would ask the Nauset classroom to give me a write up of a typical day. To my delight, what I received was by far the best admissions material to date! The students put together a whole booklet for me to share with new parents and students.
A BIG, BIG thank you to all the Nauset students who worked on this project! You rock! We are working on getting this material on the web site, until then here is a typical day for the students in the Latham School (written by the students themselves).
