A child’s job is to learn. Children with learning disabilities face challenges every day that most students don’t have to face. Springer students learn the strategies and techniques that help them do their jobs. They become able to understand concepts that had eluded them, perform what is asked, and feel good about themselves.
Springer students come from all over the region - 56 Zip codes. Approximately 50% attended public schools, 20% parochial schools and 30% private schools prior to enrolling at Springer.
