Other Educational Resouces

Learning Labs

Learning Labs provide personalized, one-on-one support for students facing significant challenges in the classroom and in life. Our Discovery therapist uses a variety of tailored techniques to improve memory, attention, language, and overall thinking processes. Designed to last 3-5 years, the program aims to retrain the brain for more efficient and independent lifelong learning. Students receive 160 minutes of one-on-one therapy each week.

Educational Therapy
This program offers an extensive “therapeutic” one on one type of intervention, and is designed for students with deficits causing them extreme frustration in the classroom and in life.
The Discovery therapist uses numerous individualized techniques that address memory, attention, language, and support a large scope of thinking processes.  The longevity of  the program, (3-5 years min.), is designed to re-train the brain, so as to enable more efficient and independent learning for life.  This is a 160 min./wk., one-on-one program.

Group Educational Therapy (NILD)
This program content is the same as Educational Therapy (see above) in its “therapeutic” approach; its unique dynamic is the group approach, where 2-3 therapy students are in session together.

Directed Learning
Directed Learning is a one on one intervention with a personal tutor which takes place in the Learning Lab and involves direct instruction.  This service is recommended for students who are not performing at grade level in one or more academic area(s).  The specific subject areas to be covered and amount of time spent to be spent is determined by administrative staff, in conjunction with teachers/parents, and after thorough evaluation. This is a 5-10 hr./wk. program.

Tutoring
Our tutoring program is for students needing concept support, not involving extensive planning/preparation by the tutor.  Time per week is determined on an individual basis.

Rx for Math
Rx 4 Discovery Math is designed to build and strengthen the student’s number sense, math fluency, math vocabulary, and problem solving strategies.  Rx Math students will be challenged to apply their growing understanding of number sense to novel problem solving activities that challenge thinking and reasoning in a 1:2, 1:3, or 1:4 setting.

Search and Teach
The “Search” is a pre-reader screening tool that is administered to every Kindergarten student in October.  It is an indicator as to whether or not intervention (Teach) could be beneficial, before potential reading issues surface.

The “Teach” part of Search & Teach has many “therapeutic” attributes.  The one-on-one intervention is for early elementary students, beginning in Kindergarten.  This is a 90 min./wk., one-on-one program.

Read Naturally
This program offers 1.0 – 1.5 hours per week of intense, individual, oral reading practice.  Vocabulary work, written story predictions, summaries, and measured comprehension skills are also a part of the process.  Students in the 1st-8th grades are given this opportunity if, through the pre-screening process, their scores indicate that intervention is needed.

Academic Coaching
This program is a comprehensive tutoring support option and involves extensive planning/preparation by the tutor, on behalf of the student, to include either accommodation and/or modification development as well as continuous collaboration with the student’s teachers.  Time per week is determined on an individual basis.

Education in Action

Education in Action (EiA) brings the traditional apprenticeship and classroom models to life by guiding students through real-world business scenarios. EiA gives students the chance to explore career interests and achieve their goals. Whether they enter the workforce, pursue further education, or receive additional training, students will gain valuable real-world skills that employers seek.
