  • Analytical teaching methodologies - we determine how each individual learns best, then teach him/her to use that learning style to their advantage.
  • Self-advocacy - our students learn to be responsible for their learning, to understand their strengths as well as their differences.
  • We teach Language, Learning, Memory, Social Skills, Self-Concept strategies.
