Accommodations

Although Education without Walls is not equipped for students with serious physical or mental disabilities, any student able to function in an unstructured environment is welcome to attend classes here.

What our program is designed to do, is accommodate the most common needs that struggling students have. According to the CDC, 64% of children aged 3-17 are currently diagnosed with school-related issues. We truly believe that the mental health of the student must be nurtured before any kind of meaningful learning can take place. Below are accommodations we have available to any students who need them, or even students who are just having a tough day. These accommodations are categorized by some of the most common childhood diagnoses, according to the CDC.

If you do not see the accommodation you need on this list, but still think your child might be a good fit for EWoW, schedule a visit with us, and we may be able to arrange accommodations for your child.
