You are cordially invited to join us for a presentation by Directors of Admission from five fine college preparatory boarding schools with integral learning skills programs.
At these schools, students with learning differences – ADHD, Executive Function Deficits or Language-based Learning Disabilities, for example – have structured supports built into their regular academic programs, not offered only as add-ons or pull-outs. Using three representative case studies, our panelists will describe how their schools would meet the needs of three bright but challenged students who need support. A question and answer period will follow the presentation.
When: 10am - Noon, Saturday, November 3, 2012
Where: The Westin Hotel Waltham's Emerson Room,
70 Third Avenue, Waltham, MA 02451
