D8 is a SXI classroom with students ages three through six.  The philosophy in the classroom is that ALL children can learn.  The staff base the students learning on what they already do and build from that point.  The students are given opportunities to learn from their own exploration and examination.  The children are placed on the floor for play and independent time.  This allows range of motion, positioning and work on using hands and arms for interacting with objects.  Along with range of motion the staff work daily on sitting, rolling, and head raising.  Communication comes in all forms in the classroom from crying, laughing, eye gaze, communication switches and verbal communication.
