Some students may find that a new skill is difficult to master in the whole group setting. For these students, teachers often provide extra support and practice in the classroom, but Learning Resource can offer help beyond the classroom setting in an individualized way that can assist the child in gaining the skills needed to be successful.
Learning Resource can also provide accommodations on a trial basis to see if the child may benefit from evaluation for possible learning challenges or needs.
Both teachers and parents can request further assistance utilizing the Learning Resource program.
