Support at Berkeley Carroll is deeply integrated into the life of the school.
The primary focus is to provide supportive services for students with learning
differences and or diagnosed learning disorders. The goal is to help enhance an
environment of better teaching and learning for all students through
collaborative work with school faculty and support with curriculum development.
Our consultation model also provides for collaboration with parents and
students' out-of-school tutorial support.
Carroll has learning specialists in each division, two in the Lower School and
one for the Middle and Upper Divisions.
This enables the school to better support and follow the growth of
individual students across all school divisions. Though the particular models
of learning support differ among school divisions, each learning
specialist collaborates directly with the classroom teachers to support
students with different learning styles and constructs and oversees individual
learning plans for students with documented evaluations and specific learning
The learning specialists in each division work closely with the
Division Directors, school psychologists, and faculty.
Learning specialists coordinate faculty meetings concerning newly published
educational materials, clinical development, research findings, and teaching
methodologies. Furthermore, learning specialists keep faculty informed of
upcoming workshops and conferences meant to enhance teaching and learning
throughout the school.
