Learning Support Center
Mission of the Program
The mission of the DWS Lower School Learning Support Center is to provide a unique learning environment within a college preparatory school for students who have diagnosed mild to moderate learning disabilities or attention deficit disorder. All diagnoses must be documented by a current psychological evaluation. The program is designed to help students understand how to maximize their learning strengths and manage their weaknesses enabling them to grow academically, socially, and emotionally. The program values the worth of the individual and seeks to guide each in becoming proficient in problem solving and thus an independent learner.
