South Shore Stars is planning to partner with Brockton Area Multi Services to provide extensive training, coaching and technical assistance to their 40 preschool teachers so they are better able to support the developmental growth of their children with special needs.
For the past 50 years, South Shore Stars has served many of the community’s most at-risk children and families. Forty percent of children enrolled in Stars’ preschool programs have been identified with special needs. Many have experienced trauma and display difficult behaviors with underlying issues including delayed language, sensory integration, motor disorders, and hyperactivity.
“Studies show that children with special needs benefit more from effective teacher-student interventions than typically developing children, and teachers’ interventions can be significantly and systemically improved through targeted and sustained professional development,” said Sheri Adlin, executive director of South Shore Stars. “We’re thrilled to have this opportunity through the Eastern Bank Grant for Good to partner with BAMSI and act on these important initiatives, and are incredibly grateful for their support.”
