Exceptional Students

Does your student have ADHD? Do they have Asperger’s? Dyslexia or Dysgraphia?  maybe they are twice exceptional – both gifted AND have a learning difference. These students may find it difficult to acquire knowledge or skills in the same ways as their peers. This could mean they struggle to learn through traditional teaching methods, or that they wrestle with a curriculum designed for the masses. According to the latest data provided by the National Center for Education Statistics, of undergraduate students self-reporting a disability, 11% reported having a learning disability. Enrollment statistics also listed by the NCES found that 20.4 million students were expected to attend an American college or university in the fall of 2018, meaning more than 200,000 students entering college have some type of learning disability. If there are special concerns for your student, we will review all relevant assessments, IEP’s or 504 Plans and testing records as well as any relevant medical information. We offer suggestions on assistance with secondary services like ACT/SAT test prep, tutoring if needed and the types of colleges and support services that would benefit the student and be compatible with his or her learning differences. We compile a list of schools and/or programs that we believe will support the student’s learning needs while challenging him or her academically. This individualized college list or transition plan is presented to the family along with guidance on how to research and meaningfully visit colleges and programs as well as advice on how to best access the services available.
