     The Oak Hill Program in Avon, CT currently serves students with multiples disabilities. Avon has both an elementary classroom setting serving students ages 7-14 and a secondary classroom setting serving students ages 14-21. However students in both settings team up for a variety of learning experiences throughout the day. Students here have the unique opportunity to attend history/science classes with their non-disabled peers in the Montessori school located within the same school building. Pupils also have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in the community and have made visits to the local bakery, library and grocery store.  
    Students in the Avon Oak Hill elementary classroom are working towards communication skills and transitions throughout the school day while students in the secondary classroom use assistive technology to enhance a variety of vocational and learning activities.
