Student learning is influenced by multiple factors within their environment, including the financial, physical and emotional supports in their lives.

These factors significantly impact their ability to communicate what they need within the classroom, with many unable to understand the content under study.

Consider this:
  • Do you speak differently with your colleagues at work compared to your friends/family at home?
  • Do you speak in a different manner with your children than you do with another adult?
Most likely you answered yes - and yet this difference in communication has been found to significantly influence how and what students learn.

Therefore - we have focused on adjusting the methods of instruction (and support) rather than the typical practice of having the students adjust.

Consideration of these differences is vital for students to succeed.
