LSP的魔力


亲爱的家长, 

When Gracejean Hennigar established our program for learning skills in 1983, it was the first of its kind at a Virginia boarding school. Gracejean was ahead of her time and knew that students with learning disabilities and learning differences could receive the support they need, 没有歧视, while fully integrating into the school's curriculum, 包括荣誉课程. She knew that they could be student leaders, team captains, stars of the show ... 任何他们能想到的 ... and graduate as confident and independent learners. 

In 2015 I had the honor of joining Gracejean on the LSP staff. I spent two years working with her before assuming leadership for the program when she retired. It is my privilege to carry on the success of this program. 

我很想见见你和你的孩子. 请拨804.758.2306 ext. 我今天要预约. I am confident that we can work together with your child toward confidence and independence.

真诚地, 
梅根·麦克尼尔
LSP总监

学习技能计划



... AN "APPROACH TO LEARNING THAT MEETS EACH CHILD WHERE THEY ARE AND PREPARES THEM TO SUCCEED ..." from the 8814vip葡京 Identity Statement


在我们寄宿学校, approximately 25% of the student population is enrolled in our 学习技能计划 (LSP). Our Learning Center is centrally located on campus and is connected to all aspects of school life as a valuable resource center for both students and faculty. Services are customized and tailored to each student’s learning differences and needs.


项目概述 
LSP supports the success of nontraditional learners and allows them to thrive in a hands-on learning environment focused on skill acquisition. LSP takes a holistic approach to support students with learning differences and those with diagnosed learning disabilities 如 Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (注意力缺陷多动症), 焦虑, 执行功能弱点, processing speed and working memory deficits, 难语症, and a range of other learning differences. The hallmark of our program is that we do not see the diagnosis or difference as a deficit, but rather as a representation of the variability of learners with great potential.

FOCUS ON SKILL ACQUISITION, CONFIDENCE, AND INDEPENDENCE
LSP helps students recognize, identify, and develop strengths to circumvent weaknesses. LSP provides comprehensive learning support and promotes the academic success of students through relationships, while also offering the support of assistive technology, 如 学习的盟友, to promote the study skills and independence that each student will need to succeed in high school, 大学, 及以后. 

我们教授时间和材料管理, 元认知策略, 目标设定, and leadership skills so that students can thrive in any future endeavor they envision. We work to promote the reading comprehension and note-taking skills with which students who have executive functioning weaknesses and language-based learning differences struggle. We provide subject-specific support in all content areas to fill gaps in academic proficiency and prepare students for the challenges they face both inside and outside of the classroom. Our ultimate goal is to develop independence and confidence to ensure that each LSP student thrives as they transition into the next chapter of their academic and personal lives. 

训练有素的教师
8814vip葡京 employs five full-time LSP instructors who are dedicated to promoting the mission of the program. All LSP instructors have classroom teaching experience in history, 科学, 数学, and Spanish and utilize their experience to provide unique, subject-specific support during each LSP class. They are specifically trained to work with a range of learning differences and disabilities including ADD, 注意力缺陷多动症, 难语症, 以及执行功能的弱点. 我们的教师, 教练, and dorm parents all work closely with LSP to help students thrive in mainstream and advanced classroom environments, and also to ensure that each student’s learning and living experience is maximized. LSP faculty are adept at coaching our non-LSP teachers in how to best support students with learning differences or disabilities. LSP instructors also regularly attend classes across the curriculum to better understand the student experience.
 

多动症(漫不经心,Hyperactive-impulsive, or combined); 难语症 or other language-based Learning Disabilities (LBLD); Specific Learning Disorders (SLD in reading, 数学ematics or written expression); Executive Function weaknesses; Processing Speed deficits; Working Memory deficits.
