Special Education Programming

Our special education programming is carefully designed to increase your child’s ability to focus, problem solve, follow instructions and think critically.

We provide quality help for a variety of types of learning difficulties:

  • CAPD - Central Auditory Processing Disorder

    Central Auditory Processing Disorder(also known as APD) is a condition where a child’s brain and auditory system don’t fully align with one another. Students with this issue have trouble interpreting sounds and words-- especially in settings with large amounts of distraction and noise.
  • ASD - Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Autism Spectrum Disorder influences those with autism or aspergers. Depending on the severity of your student’s ASD, he or she may have difficulty with in-class communication and may not find normative academic settings enjoyable and/or suitable for learning.

    Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (also known as Attention Deficit Disorder) varies tremendously from person to person. Depending on a variety of factors, ADHD may impact your student’s ability to focus and it may also increase their likeliness to be hyperactive and impulsive.
  • Dyslexia

    A common type of learning disability, dyslexia impacts the way in which individuals read and write. Although it affects the way people process information, dyslexia can be easily coped with using different learning strategies and techniques.
  • Dyscalculia

    Sometimes called “math dyslexia,” dyscalculia affects a person’s ability to make sense of numbers, math and the logic behind calculation. When it goes undiagnosed, many students are left confused and frustrated in math class. This can lead to low self-esteem and motivation.
  • Dysgraphia

    Students with this learning disability have trouble writing by hand. More specifically, the speed, legibility, and/or consistency of their handwriting may be very different than that of their peers.
  • Visual Motor Deficit

    A condition that may impact students with any type of learning disability, students with this deficit may have trouble with printing, reading, holding pencils and cutting or gluing different objects.
