Learners are welcome to attend sessions year round; we encourage continuity in their programs. However, we understand that schedules are busy and we try to offer as much flexibility as we can. WSEA of Hinsdale offers two programs in an attempt to reach as many learners as possible.
After School Skills Clinic
This highly individualized academic support program emphasizes the development of basic skills. Classes meet once a week for one hour. Each session is offered as a private or semi-private class to ensure truly individualized instruction. A short homework assignment is given with each class for added practice and to develop at-home study skills. School homework support is optional. If diagnostic testing is done, parent-teacher input, and a planning conference precede this on-going program.
Summer Skills Clinic
This comprehensive six week support program is designed to meet the student’s basic academic needs, improve general study skills, and increase confidence. Materials may be geared for remediation, maintenance, or enrichment. Classes meet one or two days per week for one hour. Daily homework is assigned to provide added drill and practice and to help develop study skills. A special K-1 Prep program is offered for students entering kindergarten or first grade in the fall. Readiness skills are emphasized with basic instruction in reading and math if appropriate. Optional diagnostic testing precedes all programs.
