Why Our Research?

Many of our students are faced with learning disabilities, challenges and differences. We know that for students, and parents, facing a diagnosis or difference, navigating what to do, what to believe and where to turn can be confusing, difficult and even scary.

To help, our team has put together a series of blogs and articles on the latest research on learning disabilities and how we, at Academics Plus, develop a core curriculum and best practices based on the latest thinking. Our goal - to help students overcome and work through their challenges to become confident, teachable students.
