Community and Resources
Everyone benefits from a greater awareness and deeper understanding of learning differences. Lab is committed to removing the stigma through continual community outreach.
Preparing our students for personal and professional success includes supporting our families, educating the public, and review the latest scientific research and literature for application in the classroom. Here’s a look at our offerings as well as a list of further resources.
Lecture Series: Programming for Parents and the Public
Lab offers educational programs for parents, families, educational professionals, therapists, and community members. Our monthly lecture series offers enlightening and informative talks on timely and relevant topics such as sleep health, school-related anxiety, ADHD research, executive functioning challenges, neurodiversity, and the dangers of vaping.
PALS: Parents Association of The Lab School
Just as your students feel they’ve found a place to fit in, Lab families also embark on their own shared experience. We encourage Lab parents to get to know each other and become more involved with their child’s education through PALS, which all year long spearheads community events for staff, students, and families in and beyond school.
Services for the Community
Lab offers clinical services and evaluations to students with learning differences throughout the D.C. area. Our on-site Reservoir Psychology Group also provides a variety of comprehensive psychoeducational evaluations, individual psychotherapy, and admissions testing for our students and the general public.
Learning Differences Resources
We’ve assembled some resources students and families might find helpful, from online communities to national research centers.
