Student Support Services

Student Support Services includes a team of learning specialists, school counselors, and a consulting neuropsychologist. This team works with families and faculty to help identify students’ needs, provide educational opportunities regarding child/adolescent development and learning, and monitor the acquisition and application of academic, social, emotional, and behavioral skills that lead to effective learning for all students.

MCDS recognizes that children have different learning styles and rates of growth and development. Student Support Services provides instruction in such areas as literacy remediation, writing support, and strategies for organization and self-regulation. Depending upon the student’s grade and specific needs, support services are provided in the classroom, through small group instruction, and/or individually. In addition, MCDS employs speech therapy consultants, and tutors who can offer on campus speech and academic support for those needing one-on-one support.

When a child struggles or is not making expected progress in a particular area, Student Support Services collaborates with faculty and the child’s family to address concerns and facilitate progress. Student Support Services frequently consults with parents to provide referrals and options for students in and outside the classroom. Using a team approach and early intervention, Student Support Services helps all students remain engaged and enthusiastic learners.
