Academic Skills

The Academic Skills program is a fee-based program designed for students in grades K-12 who have an identified learning disability, processing issues, an Attention Deficit Disorder, or academic fluency differences. Learning LinksThis ancillary instructional program is intended to assist students in establishing effective learning strategies while building on individual strengths and remediating areas of weakness. Students who are enrolled in Academics Skills receive small-group instruction from specialists trained in teaching students with learning differences.

Students with learning disabilities are characterized as having average to above average potential for learning, but who for a variety of reasons have difficulty demonstrating achievement commensurate with that potential. Given the proper instruction and remediation, compensatory skills, and motivation, these students can begin to realize their potential.

The foremost goal of the Academic Skills Program is to provide assistance and remediation until the student is able to demonstrate the ability to function both successfully and independently in the general class environment.

Services are available on a case-by-case basis.
