Special Needs Accomodations

These are just a few of the learning challenges for which we make accommodations. Every student is unique, and even if a learning challenge is not diagnosed, special accommodations may need to be observed.

Dyslexia

Our literature classes encourage students with dyslexia to listen to free audiobooks—most of the books covered have them—along with reading to improve reading skills. Teachers provide links and sources to audiobooks for the good of our students.

Dysgraphia

Students do the vast majority of their communication and assignments through typing. For students with this challenge, typing tends to be a relief. For students who are intimidated by typing, it gives them ample practice, and many find they improve by leaps and bounds throughout the semesters.

Nonverbal Learning Disability

We provide opportunities for students to interact socially in the classroom if and when they are comfortable. Students can be as involved with others as they wish. Through the use of chat, many feel very comfortable and safe interacting. Because they can “edit” or “preview” their comments and questions, those who are typically shy in a group can feel more free to express themselves.

ADD or ADHD (Attention Deficit Disorder)

Assignments are broken up into small enough sections that students can focus in manageable amounts. Instructors give students seven days to complete assignments.

Our teachers are more than willing to work with any student who needs extra special care and compassion. Have a concern that is not listed above, please contact us at jbontrager@bigriveracademy.com or call 208-540-1567.
