Who is an HRS Student?
Students at HRS are children with unrealized academic potential who have been identified with dyslexia or related language difficulties (problems with acquisition of reading and/or written language) as their primary learning challenge.
All students at HRS have a learning profile that is or resembles dyslexia or a related language-based learning difference.
The program at HRS is designed to support students with dyslexia within a classroom based setting. We do not have the resources or specifically tailored program to support students with a primary diagnosis or challenge that would otherwise impact their language acquisition, such as a behavior conduct disorder, autism spectrum disorder, or overall low cognitive function.
Children at HRS have many strengths and are creative and curious learners who flourish in an environment where their learning needs are supported effectively. Often their learning difficulties have prevented them from experiencing success in traditional scholastic programs. Sadly, it is not uncommon that this has negatively impacted their self-confidence and sense of self-worth.
In addition to helping our students develop a strong academic skill set, we strive to support our students in becoming strong self-advocates who know how they learn best. HRS provides the opportunity for students to be successful at school.
