How to Tell if Your Child Needs Hillside
The Hillside School is designed for intelligent students who struggle in a traditional school setting. Many of our students often arrive here after difficult, large-classroom experiences, feeling misunderstood.
Typically, when students initially enter Hillside, they show weakness in one or more of these areas:
- Memory Skills
- Executive Functioning
- Receptive & Expressive Language
- Work Pace
- Inattention to details or excessive focus on them
Some of our students have also been diagnosed with one or more learning disabilities or associated disorders:
- Auditory Processing Disorder
- Language Processing Disorder
- Visual Perceptual/Visual Motor Disorder
- Non-Verbal Learning Disabilities
This is a tough road for a child, for parents, and for siblings, too.
Hillside’s professional faculty regularly use individualized, multi-sensory instruction to help restore children’s confidence and guide them in understanding what they need to succeed socially and academically.
If you think your child could benefit from a Hillside education, please contact the school at 610-967-3701.
“We walked into Hillside–anxious, frustrated and emotionally drained. Our son Jack had been recently diagnosed with dyslexia, and struggled with auditory processing. In Hillside we found a place where he was supported, encouraged, and taught to advocate for himself.” – Liz Edelman, Parent
