The Learning Center At Groves Academy®
When a student is struggling in school, it’s hard to know where to turn. You see their potential and their desire to succeed. But despite all their hard work and best efforts, nothing seems to come easy. The Learning Center at Groves Academy is here to help. We offer an array of specialized services for all students throughout the community who are struggling to learn or may be diagnosed with learning disabilities and/or attention disorders. We work with each student to determine why they are struggling in school and help work toward individualized solutions.
Is your child having trouble mastering skills such as reading, writing, or math? Do they have difficulty with memory or following directions? Are they easily frustrated or can’t seem to pay attention in class? A learning disability or attention disorder may be at the heart of their academic challenges. The Learning Center is here to help. Our professional psychologists will conduct psychoeducational evaluations and will work with you to recommend specific educational interventions, services, and accommodations to help your student overcome these challenges and succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.
For students with learning disabilities or students who are behind on their studies, one-on-one tutoring can be the lifeline they need to improve academically. We provide tutoring in reading/comprehension, writing/spelling, and study skills. Our tutors are literacy experts with the experience to provide a flexible, customized approach to tutoring that meets the unique needs of each student.
Some students have difficulty understanding language or putting words together to communicate. Speech-language therapy can help these students learn to express themselves more clearly and improve their comprehension skills. Therapy can also help students understand reading material or express themselves in writing. Speech-language pathologists at Groves also specialize in supporting students who have difficulty with executive functioning. Throughout intervention, they become more confident and less frustrated, especially in the academic setting. If your student has trouble with communication, comprehension, or writing, we can help. The Learning Center offers comprehensive speech-language assessments for children and young adults, along with individualized treatment plans and therapy. Our specialty areas include receptive and expressive language, articulation, reading comprehension, writing, and executive functioning.
Groves summer programs are a unique and intensive opportunity for students and families to enjoy a positive school experience where they will begin to build the skills they need to feel smart and capable in school, often for the first time. Our small class sizes, individualized instruction, and engaging curriculum help students gain confidence over the summer.
