The Bedford School

The Bedford School will provide the appropriate intervention necessary for each learning-disabled child.
The Bedford School will provide remediation and instruction in academic, physical, and social skills, supporting the families as they reinforce and enhance this growth.
The Bedford School will provide opportunities for growth in the areas of responsibility, self-discipline and organization that will enable the learning- disabled student to become an independent learner and a contributing member of society. A learning disability is generally defined as a cognitive dysfunction, frequently hereditary, characterized by an inability to deal with written symbols, despite average or above-average intelligence, conventional instruction and socio-cultural opportunity.
Some of the characteristics include short attention span, poor ability to organize, slowness in finishing work, and an impaired ability to concentrate.

I just want to say again that we are big fans of The Bedford School. Recently my friend told one of her friends to give me a call as they were looking at different options for their daughter. I gave high praise to Bedford. Your school changed our everyday lives for the better and we are so thankful that we found Bedford. If we had to do it over again, we would do the exact same thing. The Bedford School is such a sweet and nurturing school and gave Jacob so much confidence in himself. If you ever need us for a reference or recommendation, we would be happy to help!
