Woodfield Academy empowers students with diagnosed learning differences or developmental disorders to reach their maximum potential through an individualized education approach.
Is it possible to imagine a world where every person has the same learning style, life style, parenting style and personality style? We take the wonderful diversity of our universe for granted, but the truth is, human variation is vastly beyond our ability to comprehend. When it comes to schooling, however, the traditional approach is to consider the needs of "average" or "normal" students when setting curriculum and instruction standards. Students with needs beyond the average level are considered to have "special needs", requiring extra service for successful learning. In this model, we attempt to understand individual children by comparing each to another through norm-based standardized testing.
We should not be surprised by common sentiment that traditional approaches to education seem to be failing so many children - OR - as we typically say, so many children are failing in school.
The goal of Woodfield's program is to understand the unique strengths and needs of each child from a holistic perspective. We individualize and differentiate instruction, assessment and transition planning based on the academic, social, emotional, physical and sensory needs of each student.
