Albert Einstein. Thomas Edison. Leonardo da Vinci. What do these remarkable game-changers have in common with your daughter or son? Each shared your child’s struggle with learning differences (often referred to as learning disabilities). Like these remarkable individuals, your child has the potential to change the world.
If your child has recently been diagnosed with ADHD, dyslexia, or another learning difference, no doubt you have myriad questions. “Can my child overcome this challenge?” “Is there a school that can give us support and an exemplary education?” “Is college a possibility for my kid?” “Does my child have a bright future?”
The answer is a definitive – “YES!”
Some schools mistake your child’s challenges as a disability. At Lab, we know better. We understand that your child learns differently; the way his or her brain is wired makes the traditional learning process difficult. We know — we have proven over the course of 50 years — that our non-traditional, arts-infused teaching methods are uniquely effective in helping your child master the same rigorous academics that “regular learners” master. In fact, our students are taught problem-solving strategies that often give them an advantage over students who approach schoolwork in a more conventional manner.
Do you worry about your child’s future? The Lab School of Washington has the understanding, the experience, the answers, and the success stories to help put your mind at ease.
