| The Edison Program at Lake Highland Preparatory School
"Shining a new light on learning"
The Edison Program at Lake Highland Preparatory School serves Lake Highland students with documented learning differences who desire additional specialized instructional support. Edison Resource Teachers trained in learning disabilities provide key instructional support and a variety of related services. By providing a supportive environment staffed by specialists in the area of learning differences and using best research-based educational practices, our goal is to help each Edison student learn about their own unique strengths and weaknesses, learn the appropriate skills and behaviors for their success and to raise their level of academic confidence and self-advocacy. Please note that non-enrollment in this fee based service, Edison, does not preclude a student from receiving reasonable classroom accommodations.

The Edison Program is designed for Grades 3 through 12. Students in grades Pre-kindergarten through 2 are in a stage of rapid development and skill acquisition therefore close student observation, intervention and developmental support are provided by classroom teachers in collaboration with school learning specialists and counselors. Lower School specific faculty, services and programs are the primary support services. Enhanced support by specialists in Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and reading intervention are fee based services available in PK-2. Although not typically provided in Grades PK-2, Edison Program services may be available if these Lower School services prove insufficient for a student.
