Conveniently located in West Newton, 9 miles west of Boston and just minutes from the Mass Pike and I-95, Learning Prep School serves students from 90 towns in cities nearby.
Learning Prep students have language processing and attendant learning challenges as their primary disability. Complex learning profiles of our students may include dyslexia, expressive/receptive language issues, autism spectrum disorder, anxiety, limited social pragmatics, and executive functioning challenges. The methods used at LPS are successful in developing compensatory strategies, core content knowledge, and essential skills. Hallmarks of our program include Speech and Language Therapy, Occupational Therapy, school-based Counseling, transition services, and integrated throughout the program are executive functioning and social communication supports provided within a safe learning environment. The instructional program is designed to develop self-confidence through inquiry, analysis, problem-solving, and self-advocacy, enabling each student to have the confidence to accept responsibility for their own learning and actions. LPS students are encouraged to fulfill their potential; for most, this means going on to post-secondary education; for some, it means engaging in competitive work or continued vocational training after graduation.
