Principles Universal High Road Physical Interventions: TACT-II Learning How to Incorporate Proven Therapeutic Interventions with The High Road Schools of Cecil County Over the last 9 years High Road's model has helped many students with various disabilities in our county improve their classroom behaviors, implement coping skills, strengthen their academics, and often return to their public school.
