Educational Support

GR6-rosetteSometimes a child needs extra support. At Ashwood, parents and teachers work together closely to identify the student’s needs and the available resources, such as tutoring or therapy.

Holding primary responsibility for activities in this area is Ashwood’s Care Group, a team of teachers who voluntarily commit to supporting students at Ashwood who need help beyond what is already offered in the classroom.

The Care Group carries out a number of roles within the school community, including:

  • supporting teachers in observing and understanding the needs of students, particularly those experiencing challenges to health development and academic and/or social success
  • offering suggestions for assessment and therapeutic support for students.
  • initiating studies to deepen the group’s understanding of child development, child study techniques, learning styles, learning disorders and remediation, and shares these insights with the faculty
  • organizing visits by consultants who are experts in the field of Waldorf remedial education, assessment, or other needed area
  • maintaining a resource list of area specialists
