Support for Teachers

Support for Teachers

Through regular workshops, in-service training, and peer collaborations, our Learning Resources Department helps teachers stay actively engaged in learning new approaches for teaching all of our students, specifically helping faculty to stay up-to-date on newest research around learning disabilities such as Dyslexia and ADHD. Here are the ways we support teachers:

  • We collaborate as part of the Student Support Team, working with teachers and advisors to assist students in times of academic need.
  • We work directly with teachers based on a student’s diagnosis and individualized need to create a Learning Support Plan that offers doable and effective classroom strategies. We take into account specific teaching styles and classroom set up to provide meaningful accommodations.
  • We offer check-ins and meet with faculty individually regarding students of concern and those with Learning Support Plans to gather feedback and brainstorm ways to support additional areas of need, both overall and project-specific.
  • We partner directly with teachers or departments to review projects and assignments in order to develop more differentiated and inclusive material for their class/curriculum.
  • We attend regular grade-level and divisional meetings to stay up-to-date on current happenings across the grades/classes in order to be a representative voice for students with varying learning needs.
  • We conduct classroom observations and gather data when a student may be struggling academically, to help create and develop effective interventions to support that student.
