PS/MS is the newest of the P233 sites, opening in September 2014. It  is a K-8 program serving students ages 4.9-14 in 8:1:1 and 6:1:1 classes.  The school is located in Far Rockaway. The emphasis of the program  is on communication, academics, and developing independence.  TEACCH Methodologies are employed, which help to structure the physical environment, support independence through daily schedules, and provide visual supports.  The educational team at 42 engages fully in collaboration, with related service providers working in the classrooms to support the students participation in all instructional areas, each contributing their area expertise. The teams create individualized Positive Behavior Supports. The students participate daily in a yoga based program, Get Ready To Learn. This is a research based program that has proven to help students improve in the areas of communication, self regulation, attention, and on task performance. In addition, the students engage in several Joint Action Routines throughout the day. These predictable, logical routines, provide meaningful social situations between peers.  Lastly, the student's  weekly "specials" include adapted physical education, art, and music.
