History

The founder of Bridge to Learning is a practicing Certified Special Education teacher who has worked as a consultant for private schools and saw a significant need for students to receive special education support services that were not being met. Due to budgetary constraints, schools were unable to provide resource room teachers and these children would either fall significantly behind their chronologically aged peers or would be advised to attend public schools because their needs could not be met at the private schools. Sharing her views with numerous administrators, principals and teachers; she began a quest to implement change and reform throughout the private school sectors. Due to her passion, reputation and integrity, the founder was able to open the hearts and minds of principals to open their doors and facilitate change in the New York City private schools. The founder fosters this passion and drive through obtaining teachers that perpetuate the dedication and passion to improve the overall child not just by completing schoolwork but also by improving their self-esteem. Our special education teachers individualize programs that best suit the child's specific needs.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring academic success to each and every student by improving their grades and building their confidence. We pride ourselves with delivering the highest quality of educational services by providing schools and parents with our Certified Special Education and/or Literacy teachers. Our purpose is to bring our children as close to the average aged peers as possible so that they may excel and achieve their goals.

Goals

Our goal is to implement Special Education Support teachers in schools to be an extension of the classroom teacher and remediate any weaknesses that the child may have. We utilize the child’ s IEP and work closely with the classroom teacher to develop a program that best addresses the child’s needs. When there is a small group and minimal distractions, the environment becomes more conducive to learning. We work on bridging the gap and we build on foundation skills.

Our teachers incorporate the following:

Low group ratio (1-4 students per session)

Visual and tactile based approach

Behavioral Modification Techniques

Structured Academic Approach
