Delaware Valley Friends Lower School
There has never been a more important time to bring a DVFS education to students. According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities:
- Approximately 1 in 20 school-aged children are identified with a learning disability (dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia) or an associate deficit or disorder (ADHD, executive functioning deficit, auditory or visual processing deficits, or nonverbal learning disability).
- As many as 15% of their peers struggle with such conditions but go undiagnosed.
- Years of educational research have led to a consensus among experts that the earlier a student’s needs can be identified and addressed, the better off they will be in terms of their childhood development and in building skills for future academic success which continues into adult life. This is true whether a student’s challenges apply to reading, math, executive function or other difficulties.
Clearly, time is of the essence in addressing the concrete needs of students who learn differently, and early intervention works.
