Beyond being the only school in the region dedicated to educating children with learning disabilities, Springer is unique because our goal is to help students leave our school. We are successful when our students have developed the capabilities that allow them to be successful in traditional schools.
|At Springer, we capitalize on individual strengths as we work through challenges. Springer students develop an appreciation of their own learning profile and an understanding of their learning disabilities. This understanding allows them to become advocates for themselves when they return to traditional schools.|
