Day Learning Program

We believe that every child deserves an opportunity to learn in a nurturing environment that builds a happy, capable, confident, life-long learner.

Often children who face learning challenges and disabilities are overwhelmed in their academic settings. They become frustrated, zone out, fall behind and shut down. Sometimes the situations get so out of control that students begin to exhibit behavior problems due to frustration and a lack of understanding in both academic or social situations.
We have heard difficult and disheartening stories from parents who have been unable to enroll a child in their school of choice, or are watching a child slip further and further behind in class and don’t know what to do or where to turn.
No parent or child should ever feel that they are out of options.

Is The Day Learning Program Right For My Child?
Our Day Learning Program is designed for students with learning challenges and disabilities who may need more targeted, individualized instruction.
The goal of our program is to strengthen and develop the cognitive processes necessary for learning so that students can rebuild their academic stamina and return to a mainstream classroom as a more teachable student.

How Does The Program Work?
We blend cognitive therapy with enriched academics to increase the cognitive efficiency and flexibility of each learner. Our aim is to improve processing speed and retrieval fluency, while building working memory and developing lasting executive functioning skills.
Each cognitive and educational therapy session includes instruction across a broad range of academic subjects, including reading, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. All sessions offer concentrated attention designed to meet the individual needs of each student.

What Can I Expect?

  • The Academics Plus Day Learning Program functions like a homeschool program, only we provide the academic setting and instruction. Students must be enrolled in the Georgia Home School Study Program and submit a Home Study Program Declaration of Intent.
  • The time of day for instruction and number of hours per day varies based on the individual needs of students and their families. 
  • Each student is required to complete 30 minutes of homework daily. Homework will target the specifics needs of each student and may include cognitive exercises, reading, memory work, endurance training or physical activity. Our instructors will ensure the necessary supports are provided to put each student on the right track to success!

Student Assessments
Each student is assessed annually utilizing the Woodcock Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities and Academic Achievement, along with The Test of Silent Contextual Reading Fluency. These evaluations will allow both educators and parents to mark the progress of the student based on their pre-test and post-test achievement levels.

Through their development opportunities at institutions such as Harvard, Johns Hopkins and the University of Southern California, our team is able to access the most cutting-edge research and develop practical exercises to increase the cognitive efficiency of our students.
