Colegio Maya’s Learning Resource Center (LRC) was established to provide remedial help and classroom support to students with mild learning disabilities in grades First through Eighth. The LRC program incorporates a multi-sensory approach through individualized instruction, in a variety of strategy presentations to enable a student’s development and success in specific learning areas as identified in an Individualized Education Program (I.E.P.)
Students most commonly work in the areas of:
- phonological processing
- phonemic awareness
- reading comprehension
- reading fluency
- vocabulary development
All students with learning difficulties at Colegio Maya are included in regular classrooms; this is called “inclusion” in some academic programs. Student with learning disabilities must be capable of completing the work required at their level of study with reasonable accommodations or modifications. Teachers of students served by the LRC are expected to differentiate for students’ needs in consultation with the LRC Specialist.
Progress is monitored on a regular basis and reported quarterly in the student’s I.E.P. and LRC report card. Each student’s progress is also reported in Student Support Team meetings (SST’S) that are scheduled during the beginning of the first quarter and the end of the third quarter. The student’s classroom progress is closely monitored as well through regular communication with each classroom teacher. The expected outcome for all LRC students is to become independent learners who are fully mainstreamed into their regular grade level curriculums.
