Lower School Learning Support
At the elementary school level, children are developing foundational academic skills that will serve them throughout their lifetime. Our Learning Specialist works closely with teaching teams to regularly monitor student growth in language, math, and fine motor skills so that students who may need support are identified early and provided with intervention when it will be most effective. The Learning Specialist administers student screenings, provides small group remediation (in reading, spelling and writing), and ensures the provision of classroom accommodations. Referrals are also made to outside specialists when further testing or specialized intervention is recommended. It is our goal to partner with families so that the students’ academic and social emotional needs are always at the forefront. Regular communication and collaborative team meetings help to develop plans for success as a student progresses through the grades.
