Since your twice-exceptional child has started school…
- Are there meltdowns over homework or is your child bored and unchallenged?
- Are you fighting to get your child’s needs met at school?
- Are you currently homeschooling and need guidance and support in meeting your child’s needs?
If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above, we’ve created unique Homeschool and Independent Study Programs for families like yours.
Being gifted in schools today is not necessarily a positive experience. Gifted children (and their parents) many times experience rejection from an educational system that values conformity and expects students to work along with the group without resistance or complaint.
In addition to that, many twice-exceptional students also experience frustration from learning disabilities that are not adequately accommodated (or identified) in the classroom. They become held captive by their weaknesses and rarely have the opportunity to shine in what they are good at.
Year after year in a typical school setting, these talented children learn to see themselves as failures, unable to succeed on a daily basis. Some cope by working many times harder than their peers. This is often at the cost of spending time developing their true strengths. Others finally give up on learning and become the class clown or get into trouble.
At Edison Academy SLO, we believe that all students have a unique learning style that makes learning easier for them. That is why we use a personalized approach, creating an individualized learning plan taking into account each student’s learning style, talents, and interests. We teach them in the way they learn best.
INDEPENDENT STUDY PROGRAM
In our Independent Study Program, an Individual Learning Plan for the school year is developed for your child which takes into account his/her instructional level, learning styles profile, interests, and talents.
We use this plan to choose curriculum and create a weekly learning plan for your child. During weekly coaching sessions, we team with you and your child to reflect upon previous learning and adjust the curriculum and pacing as necessary to meet your child’s needs. Click here to learn more.
In our Homeschool Program, an Individual Learning Plan for the school year is developed for your child which takes into account his/her instructional level, learning styles profile, interests, and talents.
As the lead educator, you use this plan to choose curriculum and guide weekly instruction. During weekly (or bi-weekly) coaching sessions, we meet with you to provide guidance and support in your teaching and planning. Click here to learn more.
