Panel 11/3: Prep Schools for Bright Kids with Learning Challenges
College Prep Boarding Schools for Bright Kids with Learning Challenges
Saturday, November 3, 2012, 10:00am – Noon
A moderated discussion with Directors of Admission from five top college preparatory boarding schools with integral learning skills programs.
At these schools, students with learning differences – ADHD, Executive Function Deficits or Language-based Learning Disabilities, for example – have structured supports built into their regular academic programs, not offered only as add-ons or pull-outs. Using representative case studies, the panelists will describe how their schools meet the needs of bright students who benefit from support. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
Moderators: NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus along with Carol Kinlan and Faith Howland of Howland, Spence & McMillan, Boston educational consultants.
