  1. Offering accelerated learning programs for children ages 2 to 5 years in a structured, quality, engaging environment. Accepting Fulltime, Parttime and specialized schedules.

  2. What is the best school in Wichita for a child with auditory and visual processing disorders? Catholic preferred, but not sure the Catholic schools here really help kids with disabilities first-hand. 5th grader. Tired of the current situation. Catholic schooled, but the Catholic school ships her back and forth to a public school for her reading and math. Not sure why THEY cannot accommodate her learning needs. Looking for alternate solutions. Is there any school in Wichita that can provide a quality education with special help for a sweet, smart kid with a learning disability without disrupting her entire school experience? This really sucks for her.

    • Hi Charlene – we are so sorry to hear that your 5th grader is having a hard time. Way to go on being an advocate for your child! Not knowing the specifics of the needs of your kiddo, many of the neighborhood schools (public) provide state-funded resources and special needs assistance. I personally was a 4th grade teacher in Andover, and the resources were outstanding in my opinion. Additionally, there is the Fundamental Learning Center that might be worth a call – that would actually be my first call!
