Through understanding the challenges of Attention Deficit Disorder, Asperger Syndrome , High-Functioning Autism, Bipolar Disorder , and various learning disabilities , the staff at Academy for Independence strengthen the student’s learning weaknesses and offers new strategies and skills for learning.
