PHILOSOPHY

Oakdale follows the school of thought which proposes that our children with special needs be taught to respond to their environment in a "normalized" fashion and to behave accordingly. Hence, our primary goal is to teach independence in life skills, social and community awareness, and to teach appropriate communication methods. Skilled staff model acceptable and appropriate behaviour and discourage undesirable behaviour through behaviour management techniques, with an emphasis on positive reinforcement.
