The DLS Academic Success Center

The DLS Academic Success Center (ASC) provides learning support services for students at DLS. Services offered include small group instruction, a written accommodation plan based on diagnostic testing, tutoring or homework assistance, organization support, study skills practice and more.

A certified teacher/director of the ASC serves as a student and family advocate in providing communication and real time support for students with learning differences.

Students in the DLS ASC program have a class time scheduled in the ASC classroom with the teacher providing support.

Academic Skills Screening (optional):

To qualify for the Academic Success Center program, each family must provide a copy of updated (within 3 years) educational diagnostic testing or a physician's diagnosis for their student.

In addition, the DLS Academic Success Center offers optional screening for academic strengths and weaknesses, and a learning styles inventory. Areas accessed include:

  • Reading Comprehension
  • Arithmetic
  • Mathematics
  • Problem Solving
  • Evaluation
  • Creativity
  • Fine Motor Skills
  • Memory

Screening takes approximately 5 hours and will be offered in the Fall and Spring. A parent conference to discuss the results and to offer suggestions that will strengthen all identified weak areas is included in the screening fee of $500.

Tutoring:

Additional support through a tutoring program may be recommended for students who need extra help. Tutors assist with homework, organization, and projects both during school hours in place of a study hall or after school hours.
