Equip provides comprehensive academic resources, support and services for students.
The goals at Equip are for students to develop increased self-esteem, self-advocacy and academic success by working with each student to create a learning profile tailored to his/her academic strengths and goals. Equip partners with students, families and the school to ensure students are prepared to maximize their academic potential. Equip services include subject-matter tutoring, reading comprehension strategies, math skills development, memory and learning strategies, assessment and feedback. While not every student will require these fee-based services, every student could benefit from Equip.
Additional services include
Referrals for individual psychoeducational assessment
Communication of effective strategies, interventions and/or accommodations
Collaborative meetings between the student, parent, teachers, tutors and Equip Director
