Our school is a unique environment where children learn the tools and strategies to address their learning difficulties, and to find real success in school and throughout their adult lives.


A learning disability is a neurological condition that interferes with the ability to acquire, process, store, or produce information. It creates a significant discrepancy between an individual's intellectual potential and his/her success with any of the following: listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, and mathematics. Throughout the individual's life, the condition may also affect emotional well-being, interpersonal relationships, daily living activities, and vocational performance. Learning disabilities cannot be attributed to other difficulties such as physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, emotional or behavioral disorders, or environmental factors.

There are numerous terms that are used to describe learning disabilities including dyslexia, dyscalculia, dsygraphia, executive function disorder, and auditory or visual processing disorder. While learning disabilities and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) coexist in some children, ADHD is not, in and of itself, a learning disability.
