Learning Support at Hils is not for a specific diagnosis, such as ASD, Dyslexia, ADHD, etc. but to help children and their parents. It is a careful individualized approach of proven strategies and activities chosen specifically to target the child’s particular needs. First we need to understand your child, who may learn very differently from their siblings and peers. We all have our own personal learning styles.
Progress is what matters. Success is not only about school grades, awards, or praise. If we know that a child is making progress, then it is easier to believe that change can happen. It is easier to be positive. It is easier to celebrate every little step forward. It is easier to accept and value the child.
Our facilitators encourage students to feel good about themselves, recognize what they can do and promote a healthy level of confidence by:
Believing that the child can make progress
Giving them time to fully understand
Providing a secure, calm environment, and nonjudgmental atmosphere
Adapting to the child’s unique learning style
Emphasizing the positive
Understanding and acknowledging the child’s strengths
Celebrating every success, no matter how small
Creating a safe environment for students to make mistakes and enable them to learn from their mistakes
