Learning Lab Programs

Learning Specialist Roles


Learning Specialists will consult with teachers on strategies to use in the classroom to support and enrich the student's academic experience. 


Learning Specialists will collaborate with classroom teachers on instructional practices, intervention, enrichment implementation, and accommodations. 


Learning Specialists will design and implement intensive interventions and enrichment. 

The Learning Lab provides services through our highly qualified Learning Specialists in Lower, Middle, and High School. General services include consultation, co-teaching, push-in support, or intensive intervention. Learning Specialists work with the child's educational team, which may include learning specialists, classroom teachers, counselors, outside specialists, and families, to develop and implement an Individualized Learning Plan (ILP). The ILP outlines the child's current performance, areas of need, learning support services, and accommodations needed.  Utilizing these plans, we seek to provide an educational program that both challenges and supports each of our students.
