According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, at least 5 percent, and likely more, of school age children have severe problems with learning.
What is a learning disability?
A learning disability is a neurological condition that interferes with the ability to acquire, process, store or produce information. It creates a significant discrepancy between an individual’s intellectual potential and his/her success with any of the following: listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, and mathematics.
For almost 40 years, Springer School and Center’s day school (grades 1-8) has provided for the academic and social needs of children diagnosed with learning disabilities.
Small group instruction and diagnostic teaching provide students with the tools and strategies needed to succeed in traditional school settings. While enrolled at Springer, students receive a program based on each student’s readiness and needs within a caring, supportive environment where every adult understands learning disabilities. In short, Springer students gain newfound confidence in their individual abilities. Springer helps students believe in themselves!
Throught the Center, Springer also provides a fun learning program for four weeks in the summer. Since 1992, Adventures in Summer Learning has helped children improve their basic skills while becoming more self-assured learners.
Springer School and Center is the only resource in the region dedicated entirely to learning disabilities.
