UPDATED: August 24, 2022

OPTIONS students often have multiple diagnoses that affect their performance with the core issue of a language-based etiology. OPTIONS recognizes the combined effects of LD/ADD, language-based processing issues, and executive function issues, as well as the social and psychological effects of not experiencing success in academic environments. OPTIONS offers direct interventions for students with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, NLD, Asperger’s, anxiety disorder, auditory processing disorder, and speed of processing disorders. We also provide social and emotional support to help students deal with life’s demands.
