Learning Disability

Learning Disability


Learning Disability (LD) refers to a group of differing conditions that interfere with an individual’s ability to learn, specifically in the areas of reading, writing, listening, speaking, thinking/reasoning, spelling, and computing. These are usually skills that are essential for any student to succeed in an academic setting. The international School of Warsaw believes that having a Learning Disability is not an indication of a person’s intelligence or lack thereof. The school champions the belief that learning difficulties only indicate differences in brain function and information processing, not the presence, absence, or degree of intelligence.

In many traditional schools, learning difficulties are seen as a major learning hurdle and obstacle, and many students with learning disabilities are either rejected or merely given the standard curriculum which is not a fit for them, causing them to struggle with catching up and conforming with the norm rather than reaching their full if unique potential. ISW believes that learning disabilities are not caused by and thus cannot be cured by anything; specific learning disabilities (SLDs) can and are managed effectively with targeted interventions, delivered as early as possible by qualified professionals who employ compensatory strategies in customized settings.

As an institution, we include and provide the appropriate academic programs for students with learning disabilities so they are allowed to excel and attain excellence at their own pace to exceed their perceived limitations. The school’s experienced staff facilitate effective academic and behavioral interventions in order to help design and produce a fully personalized program. Students with learning disabilities are guided to meet their highest levels of achievement, allowing them to experience opportunities for success at school, at home, and in the community.

Academic Programs


Individuals with learning disabilities may face lifelong challenges. With close to half of students with LD performing 3 or more years below their enrolled grade level in essential academic skills (45% in reading, 44% in math) and with as many as 80% of students with LD experiencing reading problems, it is critical to mitigate the negative effects of learning disabilities on students’ future personal and professional lives. ISW addresses this urgent need by providing them with the necessary tools and compensatory strategies with which to learn.

Behavioral Programs


Students with learning disabilities can reach their highest potential in structured environments that afford them a strong sense of security, a positive attitude toward learning, and incentives for desired performance. Students with learning disabilities often experience disciplinary actions at a much higher rate than those without learning disabilities in more traditional and standardized schools. By contrast, ISW provides a controlled, caring atmosphere that is conducive to focused learning by teaching them accountability and self-regulatory skills. This allows students with learning disabilities to achieve and experience successful learning outcomes without prejudice.
