Brehm’s holistic program focuses on the combined academic, social and emotional effects of having a learning disability.

Our students often have multiple diagnoses affecting their performance with the core issue of having a language-based etiology. We recognize the combined effects of ADHD/ADD, language based processing issues, executive function issues and the social and psychological implications of not being successful in an academic environment.

Brehm offers direct interventions for students with:

Specific learning disability: defined as a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or to do mathematical calculations, including conditions such as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia, and developmental aphasia.

  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
  • Nonverbal Learning Disability (NLD)
  • Communication disorders
  • Auditory Processing Disorders
  • Processing and memory deficits
  • Tourette Syndrome
  • Anxiety

Brehm also provides interventions requiring behavioral and emotional support as it relates to academic issues.
