Karen is Kairos Vanguard's Occupational Therapist, giving ALL of our kids the opportunity to participate in daily activities, from paying attention in class and concentrating on the task at hand, to holding a pencil or typing. Karen has her Master's in Education in Occupational Therapy as well as various certifications in Sensory Integration.
kairos (Anc. Greek): "the spirit of opportunity"
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
