The individual who is learning disabled can learn, be educated, have a right to that education and accommodations that will allow them to reach their potential. Education Academy recognizes the importance of the whole child by also fostering their psycho-social development.
Edmonton Academy believes that each student deserves to fulfill his or her academic potential and to enjoy confidence in the ability to achieve. Teaching, which is governed by the needs of the individual child, is essential for the student with learning disabilities and is often not possible in conventional school. Previous failure in schools need not be permanent.
“At my old school, I didn’t think I was a very good student. Everyone else seemed to be at a higher level than me. I thought I couldn’t learn. When I came to Edmonton Academy, I found my inner strength. I was finally at the same level as everyone else and learning wasn’t stressful.
When I found out I had a learning disability, I thought I was the unluckiest person. But now I know I am a lucky person because we are all special in our own way and we should all learn to accept ourselves.”
