Students with learning differences often fall through the cracks and get left behind in the traditional learning environment.

Every student should be given an opportunity to reach their full potential.

Why Customized Education?

Focused Instruction

Students with learning differences often need specialized instruction that focuses on their specific needs.  At Bridge Builder Academy we design their schedule and curriculum to meet those specific needs and their specific learning style through one on one instruction.

Specially Trained Teachers

Having the right teacher to work with a student's specific learning difference is crucial to the success of every student.  We hire our staff with each of our students  in mind, to ensure the best match for helping each student reach their highest potential.

Increased Confidence

When a student begins to be taught the way they learn, they start building confidence in their own abilities.  They become excited about learning and get motivated to learn even more.

Autism Spectrum

"Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.


Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges. The ways in which people with autism learn, think and problem-solve can range from highly skilled to severely challenged." 

                                          AutismSpeaks.org

At Bridge Builder Academy we are able to customize the curriculum and environment to address some of these varied learning strengths and challenges.

Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalcula

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that involves difficulty reading due to problems identifying speech sounds and learning how they relate to letters and words (decoding). Dyslexia affects areas of the brain that process language.

Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects writing abilities. It can manifest itself as difficulties with spelling, poor handwriting and trouble putting thoughts on paper.

Dyscalculia is a math learning disorder that makes mathematical reasoning and computation difficult, in spite of adequate education, average or greater intelligence, and proper motivation.

At Bridge Builder Academy we are able to implement accommodations and provide specific learning tools to assist students in overcoming these challenges.

Auditory Processing Disorder

Auditory processing disorder (APD), is a condition that impacts the brain’s ability to filter and interpret sounds. People with APD can hear, but have a hard time receiving, organizing, and processing auditory information.

Types of APD include:

  • Sound Discrimination Problems

  • Auditory Memory Problems

  • Language Processing Problems

At Bridge Builder Academy we are able to implement accommodations and provide specific learning tools to assist students in overcoming these challenges.

Language Processing Disorder

A language processing disorder (LPD) is an impairment that negatively affects communication through spoken language. There are two types of LPD—people with expressive language disorder have trouble expressing thoughts clearly, while those with receptive language disorder have difficulty understanding others.

One-on-one instruction allows Bridge Builder Academy to provide accommodations, while focusing on techniques to help the student overcome these learning challenges.

Memory Retention Problems

Memory problems can include:

  • Long term memory recall issues from a brain injury

  • Short term memory issues

  • Working memory issues


Bridge Builder Academy can help establish routines and other techniques to assist students in developing a stronger memory recall, so that they can gain confidence and improve their success in their learning environment.

Visual Processing Disorder

A visual processing, or perceptual, disorder refers to a hindered ability to make sense of information taken in through the eyes. This is different from problems involving sight or sharpness of vision. Difficulties with visual processing affect how visual information is interpreted or processed by the brain.

By altering the method of content delivery to be less focused on visual content and more focused on auditory or tactile content, Bridge Builder Academy can assist students in a way that allows them to learn in a variety of styles.
