We meet each student with an open mind, expecting the unexpected, and attuned to the subtleties of co-morbid conditions and the emotional drain of coping with an LD. Most of our students struggle with executive functioning and attentional issues. Many of these teens also have been diagnosed with disorders of written expression, math and reading disorders, language-based learning disabilities, nonverbal learning disorder, and autism spectrum disorders. Some have poor working memories, faulty word retrieval, slow processing speed, and sub-standard academic fluency. Some struggle with anxiety and depression related to their learning challenges. Others have suffered concussions or have physical impairments that compromise their academic achievement.
We welcome all students and, if we can’t be helpful, we will try to match families with an appropriate professional colleague.
