    The purpose of the horticultural therapy program at Pearce Hall, led by Amy Nau, is to help students be more successful in their personal and academic lives. The program accomplishes this by designing therapy goals and objectives to aid in positive behavior, social and emotional development, and by focusing the program to achieve personal, special education, and academic goals.  Using horticultural therapy as a complementary therapy to aid student behavior and academic achievement, the therapist works alongside Pearce Hall teachers, support staff, and educational support counselors to help students make positive progress in their goals.
