In the We Explore our Environment (WEE) program, ISD’s youngest students focus on social and language skills. These students do not live on campus, and do not even need to be enrolled at ISD to participate. Rather than go to a daycare or straight home after school, these students can experience an extended 90 minutes which complements their development in a fun atmosphere.
Numbers, the alphabet, signed and written vocabulary are emphasized using games, field trips and everyday play. Activities are planned to boost language skills as children draw, cook, have story time and more. WEE helps to bridge gaps often held by small children with hearing losses who are delayed in their communication skills.
