The Lab School of Washington accepts boys and girls in grades 1-12 who have documented evidence of specific learning disabilities with average to above average intellectual functioning.
The Lab School program is designed for the child whose school problems are rooted in moderate to severe learning disabilities. Often, a child with learning disabilities also has attentional problems, language, and sensory-motor weaknesses.
The Lab School program is designed to meet the needs of the learning disabled child through a highly individualized academic program that incorporates both one-to-one instruction and small group experiences. Therefore, a candidate for admission must be able to function within a small group. A candidate who functions at any academic performance level may be accepted after a determination is made on a case by case basis whether the student will benefit from the program.
The aim of the school is to enable children with uneven levels of functioning to return to a less restrictive environment in the shortest time feasible for each student.
