Frequently Asked Questions
Enrolling your child at Brehm Preparatory School is a big decision. We’ve provided some answers to questions our families frequently ask but encourage you to contact our Admissions Office to learn more and to start your child’s journey to success.
What are “Learning Disabilities”?
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 learning disabilities (LD), Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), 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
Brehm also provides interventions requiring behavioral and emotional support as it relates to academic issues.
