Educational Support Services
Each child’s mind is uniquely created by God and for His purpose. This uniqueness includes strengths and weaknesses. Educational Support Services acknowledges learning differences and provides a variety of programs, intervention strategies, and teaching methods to meet the learning needs and challenges of exceptional children. Support extends to the teachers and families of children who learn differently. Through a team effort, children with learning differences will become successful and independent learners who realize their God-given abilities and fulfill their God-designed potential.
We believe in the value of the Educational Support Services programs that Heritage provides. Because of this, we offer a couple options for financial assistance for families who need help affording ESS for their children.
- NILD Educational Therapy
- Search & Teach
- STAR Reading
- Directed Studies
- Academic Skills Class
- Written Intervention Plans
- International Student Program
This program is designed specifically for students (grades 1-12) with average to superior intelligence with identified learning differences. NILD Educational Therapy is a unique intervention that delivers educational therapy one-on-one to stimulate a student’s learning weakness(es) in a non-tutorial approach.
(Accredited by the National Institute for Learning Development)
Search and Teach is an early intervention program developed to meet the educational needs of young learners. Every kindergarten student participates in the screening process conducted in early fall. Students identified as needing additional skill development are offered an opportunity for intervention.
A Written Intervention Plan is documented accommodations that are to be allowed for an eligible student. A WIP is only written after a psycho-educational evaluation has been completed.
A temporary Medical WIP is written in the event of an injury or extended illness that interferes with a student’s ability to complete assignments and tests in a timely manner. Medical documentation is required.
Our international student program is designed to meet the language and cultural needs of international students enrolled in high school. For more information about the International Student Program, click here.
