Lawrence School serves students with IEPs, 504s, and/or diagnoses, including: dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, and ADHD. Our program is designed for students who have average and above intelligence, who simply process information differently than what is expected in a traditional classroom.
We specialize in teaching students who are average or above average in intelligence, but struggle with a learning difference and/or with focusing their attention. This includes:
Expressive or receptive language disorders
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Processing speed challenges
Executive function challenges
In public school environments, the IEP process would classify our students as having a Specific Learning Disability (SLD).
When students are faced with academic frustration in a traditional classroom, they often develop behaviors and strategies to avoid situations for which they don’t have the skills to succeed. Some students with learning differences experience a loss of self-esteem that can drive behavioral issues. We find this behavior can oftentimes be reversed when that student is in an environment where they CAN succeed! Our discipline program, however, is not designed to serve students with persistent or severe behavior problems.
Lawrence School welcomes students, staff and Board members of all ages, races, colors, religions, genders, gender identities, sexual orientations, disabilities, handicaps, national and ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available at the school. Lawrence School does not discriminate in administration of its education or admission policies, hiring practices, tuition assistance or other school administered programs.
What is OG-based multisensory instruction, anyway?
Our commitment to this style of teaching is rooted in decades of research on how students with learning differences best retain information.
