At Allaire School, our goal is to teach children to compensate for their learning disabilities, to become independent learners, to be good citizens and to become productive, creative members of our society.
Students must have average to above or gifted intelligence.
The Allaire School provides a calm, caring, yet structured atmosphere which contributes to the students' ability to focus on tasks and to build independent learning skills.
Students are taught "tricks" which help them compensate for their learning discrepancies.
These techniques are based upon a psychoneurologic approach.
Organizational and time management skills are learned, and computers are used to teach word processing and some math skills.
The first change we observe is the child's sense of relief, that finally, teachers understand how they learn.
As skill levels are mastered and independently used, their self esteem rises.
Our students form a close knit group, supporting and encouraging each other with comradery and good sportsmanship.
