Students at Briarwood have average to above average intellectual abilities and have not yet reached their academic potential in traditional school environments. Briarwood students typically have a primary diagnosis of dyslexia, and may need additional support with dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and/or ADHD.

Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”
