We help students with ADHD, dyslexia, executive dysfunction, and other learning deficits such as visual, auditory, and verbal processing difficulties.
Accommodations for children with learning differences or learning disabilities are modifications in how concepts are presented to facilitate teaching and acquisition of knowledge. Because all of our programs are one-on-one, our educational consultants, academic coaches, and tutors can create individualized plans of instruction that are tailored to the needs of each student. Everything from choosing enrichment materials, setting the schedule, selecting the venue, and designing the modality of instruction are thought of and planned to ensure optimal results.
It depends on the school you are applying to. Colleges and private schools have different requirements and how they evaluate and process applicants with learning differences. Before making a school list, spend a lot of time researching their admission requirements, curriculum, and overall school culture to know if they incorporate accommodations into their system. The right school will determine your child’s success. Many students with learning differences get accepted to top-tier universities, but they can only succeed with proper support.
Generally speaking, disability disclosure is not required for students with learning differences. However, if there are aspects of the academic record like grades or GPA that need to be explained, it might be better to disclose the learning differences to give admissions officers more context and evaluate your application with considerations in mind. In such cases, an applicant may provide more information in the last section of the Common App.
