School Notes:

  • For our students, school environments were either too expansive in their approach – causing students to be overwhelmed, confused and unable to cope effectively; or they were too restrictive – placing students in environments with children with far more severe social, emotional or behavioral problems.In addition, these children were not experiencing difficulties exclusive to their school/learning setting. Rather, they were having difficulties that extended into many areas of their life; including home, social, emotional and/or academic.Some of these students have been diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers and related diagnoses. Many of these students do not have a diagnosis at all; they simply perform better in a smaller, safer and more consistent atmosphere.Based on the above factors, Kentwood adopts a holistic approach to the child’s education – an approach that includes a structured, nurturing environment with set expectations; supports; and rewards.Our success hinges on our expertise and understanding of how the child’s difficulties affect the whole family, our Therapeutic Intervention setting, and our exclusive teaching systems.Our program works to establish the child’s self confidence and trust in the school, the staff and the Kentwood setting. This in turn allows us to provide our students the skills, knowledge and tools to integrate successfully into school, society in general and into all other aspects of their life.
