Proud to Educate and Empower Children with Learning Differences 

When a child is diagnosed with a learning difference, the first thing many parents do is begin to evaluate whether their current school is serving their child’s unique needs. Parents of preschoolers or kindergarteners start looking for schools that specialize in early intervention. We know that this search takes time and can become a challenge for parents and caregivers. 

Children with learning differences deserve an exceptional education. Too often in public schools, they’re underserved due to a lack of resources or expertise. We know, through experience and research, that kids with learning differences can truly thrive in elementary, middle, high school, and beyond when surrounded by the appropriate support. 

We are proud to serve students with mild to moderate autism, ADHD, anxiety, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, executive function disorders, and other specific learning disabilities. 

How Julie Billiart Helps Students with Learning Disabilities

Small Class Sizes

Small class sizes with a 1:6 or 1:8 teacher-to-student ratio assure each student is receiving the necessary attention they need for academic, social, and emotional growth. The dynamics of having two intervention specialists in a classroom at a time provides students with an additional level of support and instruction.

Licensed Intervention Specialists 

Julie Billiart Schools’ educators are licensed intervention specialists. All of our teaching staff have extensive classroom training and experience with students who have been diagnosed with mild to moderate autism, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and other specific learning disabilities. Our teachers often refer to their time at Julie Billiart Schools as a calling, not a career, which explains our high teacher retention rate. 

Our collaborative approach to special education pairs newer teachers with veteran educators so that innovative, creative solutions and techniques are combined with tried-and-true methods to help students reach their full potential. All staff members across the Julie Billiart network of schools are encouraged to participate in professional training and learning opportunities that develop and explore new skills.

Individualized Learning Plans

We understand that no two children learn the same way. The small class sizes and the high teacher-to-student ratio at Julie Billiart Schools allow our licensed intervention specialists to assess each student’s abilities, discover how they best learn and design an individualized learning plan that meets the child’s specific needs. We are able to execute, and often exceed, the recommendations on a child's IEP.

Unique Learning Environment

Our campuses feature one classroom for each grade level, along with an adjoining “resource” room for remedial and small group instruction. Our learning environments are specifically designed to accommodate a variety of learning styles and sensory issues. In both schools, you can expect to see:

  • Classroom walls painted in calm, soothing colors
  • Carpeted classrooms and hallways to reduce noise
  • Natural and/or subdued lighting
  • Flexible seating options that enable children to move about, expend energy to stay on task, and even work collaboratively with other students 

Onsite Therapists

Julie Billiart Schools offer onsite art, music, occupational, and speech therapy. Licensed therapists work with one another and the teaching staff throughout the day to offer consistent strategies that best ensure each student is reaching their goals and developing new skills.
