Mann Special Classes

​​​​​​​Mann Front.JPG​Mann Special Classes is located in the city of Anaheim and serves students from Preschool to sixth grade with moderate to severe disabilities that have been referred by their local school district. We have 12 classrooms on the Horace Mann Elementary School campus which is a general education program operated by Anaheim Elementary School District.​

Staff use evidenced-based instructional strategies to teach the functional skills that will maximize independence for the students. Classroom instruction is aligned to the California State Standards and 21st Century skills. Establishing a functional means of communication for each student is also an important focus of the program.

Each classroom benefits from smaller class sizes, increase in staff to student ratio and structured educational expectations. Instruction is designed to meet individual needs of each student throughout the school day, including recess and lunch periods. Instruction is based upon the following curricular skills: functional academics, communication, self-care, social-emotional/behavioral functioning, and motor skills so our students can maximize their independence in the domains of vocational, community access, self-care, independent living skills and recreation/leisure activities. 

A functional mobility component to the curriculum is utilized for students with physical disabilities to develop the skills of sitting, standing and walking while participating in their school activities.

As a learning community, we believe that professional expertise, supported by collaboration between parents, students, teachers, specialists, paraprofessionals, and administration leads to a safe learning environment and positive student outcomes.

The 12 classrooms on this campus serve students with the following types of disabilities:

    • Autism
    • Deaf and Hard of Hearing (Oral Program)
    • Intellectual Disability
    • Multiple Disabilities
    • Orthopedic Impairment​
