Learning support in the FWCD Middle School takes on many forms. The ultimate goals with our students are to create consistent self-advocates and to utilize learning strategies that work for each student’s individual style. The Middle School Learning Specialist assists academically qualified students with learning differences, as well as provides counsel to support the learning of all Middle School students. The Learning Specialist works with students throughout the year to develop academic skills, beginning with a goals meeting and extending through the school year, with regular communication with students, parents and teachers as we progress.
The Middle School offers accommodations for students that have diagnosed learning differences, and the Learning Specialist works with them on implementing those accommodations. At the core of the process, we want to ensure that we are doing what is in the best interests of our students. Through the established learning support processes, we can ensure that students have a team of adults ready to provide assistance when needed.
