Building Strengths, Reducing Challenges

When we work with students and families, our goal is always to build on a student’s strengths and reduce their challenges. We want to ensure that each student understands their strengths and has access to the tools they need to thrive.

While every student’s learning profile is different, these are some of the strengths we like to focus on to guide our conversations:
