The Alfred Binet School was originally founded in 1961 as a private school for children having learning disabililties. It became a part of Jefferson County Public Schools in 1979 and changed from LD units to Multiple Handicapped Units.
The Binet School serves students who have a combination of disabilities that can result in significant learning, developmental, or behavioral problems. Learning for these students is often obstructed by the inability to process and receive information. The Binet School provides successful learning experiences through a highly structured and supportive environment.
The Binet School offers an environmental approach structured to the needs of each student. This includes interation of academic, social, behavioral, physical and cognitive areas. The instructional needs of students aged 5 through 21 are addressed through direct and indirect instructional models that are both individualized and interactive. Instructional techniques and curriculum address needs ranging from readiness to work transition.
