A Trip to St. Mark’s Preschool for Special Needs Children

Professor Schlobach’s Abnormal Psychology class took a trip to St. Mark’s Preschool for children with special needs. St. Mark’s offers children quality education by focusing on creating a nurturing environment where they can express their emotions. Furthermore, the curriculum used to teach the children at St. Mark’s is based on research conducted on how children learn and is expected to lead to future academic success. Professor Schlobach’s class was given the opportunity to tour the facility and experience first-hand the education provided at St. Mark’s. When asked by one of her students about the importance of the trip, Professor Schlobach replied with, “Understanding the impact of trauma at every stage of life is essential for anyone entering the psychology profession.”
