Once enrolled, each student is assigned an academic advisor, an experienced administrator with deep knowledge of both learning differences and TSS.
The advisor acts as a resource to the student throughout his/her tenure at the school, helping the child develop self-advocacy skills.
The advisor is responsible for overseeing the academic, social, and emotional growth and well-being of each student. As such, he or she is the main point person for parents and teachers—the cornerstone of the communication cycle.
The advantages of this approach are proven.
The academic advisor is:
- Another professional who is watching out for your student
- More available by phone, email, and for meetings than classroom teachers
- A constant presence for your student at school, who won’t change when they move up a grade
