Is Your Child Having Trouble Coping with Peers?
There could be several reasons for a child failing to keep pace with the rest of the class. Among the different cases, children with special needs tend to be the most common. Forest Trail Academy has designed a special Prescriptive/Adaptive Program for such children – one that helps them keep pace with their peers without compromising on their overall development.
This program is tailor-made and has been devised in a manner that allows children to customize the pace of learning according to their own needs. In this manner, they are free from the pressure of having to cope with children around them and are encouraged to open up and question freely. This enables them to explore their subject matter more freely and fosters holistic learning. Designed according to the standards set by the No Child Left Behind Act, this program focuses on improving overall student achievement and is ideal for at-risk and learning disabled children.
