Panel 11/3: College Prep Boarding Schools for Bright Kids with Learning Challenges


Co-Sponsored by NESCA and Boston Educational Consultants Howland, Spence & McMillan

Please join us for a moderated discussion with the  Directors of Admission from five top college preparatory boarding schools with integral learning skills programs.

At these five schools, students with learning differences – ADHD, Executive Function Deficits or Language-based Learning Disabilities – have structured supports built right into their regular academic programs, not just offered as add-ons or pull-outs.

Using hypothetical case studies, the 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

Guest speakers will include Directors of Admission from:
The discussion will be moderated by NESCA Director Dr. Ann Helmus along with Educational Consultants Carol Kinlan and Faith Howland of Howland, Spence & McMillan.

Admission is $20 per person, payable by credit card in advance by phone or, space permitting, by exact change at the door. Light refreshments will be served. There is ample, free garage parking. For additional information, please call 617-658-9800, or email nesca@nesca-newton.com.
