For children ages 6-16 with language-based learning disabilities At EagleHill, our students and their families discover a specialized education for children with learning disabilities, one that suits each child’s strengths and needs, within an environment that is as traditional as possible. Our mission is clear: to provide individualized, academic remediation for children with language-based learning disabilities, and help them develop the skills and strategies to successfully transition to their next school. We believe that everyone can learn with the right kind of intervention. Students learn in different ways, so our research-based teaching methods vary to suit each child, and are continually assessed and customized to accommodate each child’s learning profile. And, since children with learning disabilities often experience difficulty in social skills development, remediation of these skills is also provided. The supportive, nurturing environment at Eagle Hill is key to the development of socially competent and emotionally secure children. Here, there is a recognition and acceptance for a variety of learning and social styles. But beyond that, our onsite team of social workers, school counselors, and psychologists ensure that there is always someone with additional support and expertise if needed. Our faculty genuinely enjoys children and consistentlymodels their support
