All teachers should have access to training in best educational practices and current research.
Our faculty is trained in the best research and evidence-based approaches to help our LD/ADHD students achieve success, but the reality is that not every student who needs a TSS education can attend. To extend our reach and help as many students as possible, we provide ongoing teacher training and professional development support.
Collaborative Professional Development
Fall Series 2018
Welcome to The Southport School's new initiative - The Southport CoLAB. The CoLAB provides the highest quality programs in training professionals, educators, and families using a collaborative, partnership-based approach with like-minded organizations and experts in the field. Our mission is to integrate research, practice, and advocacy to effect positive outcomes for people with learning and attention issues.
Led by Southport School teachers and collaborators, we currently offer three specialized training programs: structured literacy, executive functioning, and assistive technology. Parents, teachers, and administrators are invited to learn more about how we can work as a community to impact the nearly 1 in 5 students with learning and attention issues, including the 1 in 10 with dyslexia, in our schools.
