Brehm School is dedicated to helping students with learning disabilities to discover and reach their full potential. We are a boarding school that takes a holistic approach to the many issues associated with special educational needs. We are more than a school for learning disabilities. We eduacte children to be successful in life. There is no one definitive way to undertake teaching a child with learning disabilities. At Brehm, we encourage our students to discover their strengths and develop strategies to overcome their challenges to be able to reach their goals in school and beyond. It may be difficult to separate from your child, but complex learning disabilities require a very special environment to maximize the educational process.

Teaching Children with Learning Disabilities

At Brehm, we incorporate self-discovery into the educational process. It is easier to teach students with learning disabilities when they are very aware of the breadth and depth of their individual strengths. Their input is invaluable in the journey toward independence and self-reliance. Learning cognition is a pivital part of our curriculum. This is a process that teaches the students about various learning disabilities so that they can discuss and explore their personal challenges. With this knowledge and understanding, they can begin to find their own unique keys to success.

Brehm Disability Learning School

We realize that many parents are reluctant to send their children to a boarding school. Learning disabilities do not disappear or fade away. Despite the success of our program – and 88% of our graduates go on to college – we cannot cure learning issues or disabilities. We can however empower our students to maximize their strengths and utilize these strenths to minimize their challenges. If Brehm sounds like a disability learning school that might be right for your 6th through 12th grade student, please contact us to learn more.
