Professionals and Providers
Greenwood School faculty and staff are experienced in providing appropriate academic and social-emotional accommodations and supports for students with many types of learning differences and/or challenges. Although our enrollment is open to any student, we specialize in serving students with diagnosed learning differences or difficulties, such as (list is not all-inclusive):
- Auditory and/or Visual Processing Delays
- Autism Spectrum Disorders, specifically those who would formerly have been diagnosed as
Asperger’s Syndrome or Pervasive Developmental Delay
- Executive Functioning
- General Anxiety
We are an appropriate placement for families to research and inquire about our programs if their student is experiencing the above (or similar) challenges. Greenwood School does not provide modified curriculum or standards, but we do provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations to give students their best opportunities for success. Additionally, Greenwood School is not an appropriate placement for families whose student’s primary exceptionality is specifically behavioral, but we do partner with several other schools who are appropriately equipped for students with those specific needs, and we are more than happy to refer families to achieve the best fit for their student. We all have a common mission and we are more effective when we work together! If you are an educator and would like to partner and collaborate with Greenwood School, please contact us at 904-726-5000 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may visit your campus.
Greenwood School reviews families’ Individual Education Plan (IEP) and Psychological/Educational Testing Report (if their student has those documents) as part of our admissions process, in order to gain a general understanding of the students’ needs before proceeding. We also advise our families to have their students’ testing re-done later in high school so that the results may be used to obtain official accommodations for their ACT/SAT testing.
Thank you for the work you do to help all sorts of families and students—we want to partner with you! Families often ask us where they can access the services described above. If you are a professional medical provider (i.e., pediatrician, psychologist, psychiatrist) who provides psychological/educational testing, occupational therapy, vocational therapy, etc. and you would like to be included as a Greenwood School-recommended provider, please contact the School at 904-726-5000 or via email at email@example.com to discuss with our administration.
Prospective Parents and Guardians
If your student has been diagnosed with a learning difference, you likely have many questions about what that means for their academic success. At Greenwood School, our professional faculty and staff emphasize each student’s strengths in order to address their specific needs as individual learners.
We are experienced in providing appropriate academic and social-emotional accommodations and supports for students with many types of challenges (list is not all-inclusive):
- students who may often experience difficulty with organization skills and/or focusing their attention for sustained time periods (often diagnosed with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder).
- students who may often have difficulty “keeping up” with presentation of new information, dependent upon the way in which it is presented, or who require additional repetitions or more time to process new information (often diagnosed as Auditory and/or Visual Processing Delays).
- students who may often experience difficulty in knowing how to communicate material and information to others, or experience awkwardness and/or anxiety in social situations (may have been diagnosed as Autism Spectrum Disorders, such those who would have formerly been diagnosed as Asperger’s Syndrome or Pervasive Developmental Delay).
- students who may often experience difficulty processing mathematical facts, formulas, and applications (perhaps diagnosed with Dyscalculia).
- students who may often experience difficulty with the physical act of writing (perhaps diagnosed with Dysgraphia).
- students who may regularly have difficulty with the mechanical processes of reading printed text (often diagnosed with Dyslexia).
- students who may generally struggle with organizing their belongings, assignments, schedules, etc. (usually does not involve a specific diagnosis, but may often be termed as difficulties with Executive Functions).
- students who may often feel uncomfortable with seemingly routine settings and/or group interactions (academic, social, etc.), but may not be able to explain how they feel or why (may not involve a specific diagnosis, but may sometimes be diagnosed or referred to as General Anxiety).
