Back to School, Back to Fun!

It’s been a great start to the 2021-2022 school year at The Caroline School! Easter Seals Greater Houston’s Caroline School provides unique educational services to meet the physical, social and cognitive needs of individuals ages 0-21 with multiple disabilities, including those who have additional medical needs. Our students learn and grow so much while also having fun with their peers. Check out some of our back to school highlights!

Our students have enjoyed our new activities, seeing old friends and meeting two new friends! Welcome to The Caroline School Aidan and AJ! We are loving getting to know our new students and working towards their goals.

Classroom 1 is learning about Technology – new and old! They love taking pictures and exploring cell phones.

AJ is curious about the Technology lesson.

Classroom 2 created a Summer Adventures PowerPoint! Students used their communication devices, voices, and assistive technology to talk about their summer stories with their friends.

Melanie shares her pictures from summer

We believe that with love, patience, and the right amount of accommodations, EVERY child can learn incredible things. The Caroline School’s low teacher to student ratio allows for students with multiple disabilities and medical needs to receive the care and personalized instruction they need to help them reach their goals. We would love to add new friends to our classes! To learn more visit CarolineSchool.org.
