Academic Services

Individual Academic Support
Students who are accepted into the program have a diagnosed learning disability. They may experience specific difficulty in organization, reading, written expression, or mathematics. The objective of the program is to assist a student in further developing strengths while coping with specific areas of weakness. The regular classroom curriculum is used to facilitate the development of strategies that are appropriate for each individual student. Assistive technology such as a highlighting pen, the FlyScribe pen, and the graphic organizational program Inspiration are among the tools that are demonstrated and encouraged for utilization by students in the Academic Services Department. The support is scheduled two to three times a week during the academic day.
