Learning Differences

The Eagle Hill Program effectively teaches students who have language-based learning differences such as ADHD, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, auditory processing disorder, and executive function disorder.

These are just some of the learning differences that students at Eagle Hill have been diagnosed with. Your student may have a different learning difference - such as expressive or receptive language deficits - or may have fallen behind or have academic weakness in the areas of reading, writing, mathematics, and/or attention. The information below is just an overview of those common learning differences, and is meant to serve as a resource for prospective families, not as a diagnostic tool.

Please reach out to our Admissions Office to learn more about our program and share more information about your child and their academic needs.
