Achieving success for students with learning disabilities and attention challenges

The FLY (Falcon Learning … Your Way) Program is a fee-based academic support program that provides a comprehensive range of enhanced services to students who have learning disabilities (SLD) and/or attention challenges (ADHD). 

Learning Specialists provide coaching in the development of the skills and strategies necessary for academic success, self-advocacy and independent learning for students diagnosed with learning differences.
