This offering includes a comprehensive literacy intervention program and will introduce students to Language! for the first half of class, and then students will receive individual math enrichment for the second half of the class.  The math portion of this program is designed to help students fill in knowledge gaps from Pre-Algebra and Algebra, as well as focus on review of basic Geometry concepts needed for higher level math courses.  Included in both parts of the academic program is an opportunity for students to also practice study skills, creating and maintaining a system for organizing materials and practicing a system for taking effective notes.

This two week class is open to all students entering 7th through 10th grades and will focus on students with neurocognitive disorders.  Students entering Orion in Fall 2015 are especially encouraged to enroll in this 2-week course.
