One of the greatest instructional needs for learning-different students is that of a highly structured, small class setting. With Shelton's average teacher-to-student ratio of one to six, students in grades preschool through 12 are automatically given a head start on their road to successful learning.
Shelton is a Unique Place:
- Trained professionals whose specific expertise and experience are in the field of learning differences
- Individualized action plans for intervention
- A nurturing environment in which to learn
- A curriculum that emphasizes academics and self-esteem
- A social skills curriculum that spans all grade levels
- The development of each student's unique talents
- An emphasis on early identification of learning differences
- The largest school for LD students in the world
In addition to the day school, Shelton is a national resource center that includes three additional components:
The Language, Speech, and Hearing Clinic
The Clinic provides services for children both on and offcampus through individual and small group programs. They also offer in-depth speech and language evaluations, speech, language, hearing and vision screenings, and staff development.
The Evaluation Center
Assessment services for the comprehensive evaluation and referral of children, youth and adults keep our Evaluation Center busy. They also offer consultation to parents, professionals, and school personnel.
The Training Center
The Training Center coordinates many programs for students, parents and teachers outside of Shelton's own regular school day and campus. Teacher Training is offered to public and private school teachers to give them the skills necessary to meet the needs of LD Students.
