ML Learning Support

Learning Support personnel provide direct and indirect support to students who exhibit difficulty with academic learning and/or performance. We collaborate with parents, teachers, and students to develop appropriate instructional strategies as well as to offer referrals for additional support which might include: private tutoring, speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and psychoeducational testing. Additionally, we help to identify students who are at risk for developing difficulties and provide recommendations and ongoing monitoring. For students with an outside psycho-educational evaluation, an Action Plan is developed based on the evaluation and is used to provide faculty with information on a student's learning and recommended accommodations. Students with a diagnosed learning disability should have a psychological evaluation on file at school, current within the last five years.
