Doris A. Sanders Learning Center is an educational center serving students with varying Exceptionalities from 5 to 22 years of age, as part of the Polk County Public School system.
These classes focus on independent functioning/self-help, social/behavioral, and communication skills. Some students receive physical and occupational as well as speech/language therapy. Students are assessed yearly with various instruments. Some of these may include Brigance, Florida Alternate Assessment, and Careers for Me just to name a few. Our students are becoming involved in many new activities as a result of these assessments; activities in areas including: leisure and productivity in the home, community and school settings, social interaction, communication, personal care, health, safety routines, and mobility within familiar environments.
