    For 75 years, Cove has served as a vital stepping-stone in our community, helping children with learning disabilities develop the skills and self-confidence required to successfully transition to community schools or post-secondary education. We provide a comprehensive, individualized approach to learning. At Cove, we recognize the complex learning needs of students with learning disabilities, and we provide the integrated specialized services that contribute greatly to their success.

    In order to serve the students and meet their complex needs on a daily basis, classroom sizes typically consist of no more than 10 students. The students require intensive remediation that is best provided through an integrated service delivery model. The academic program provided consistently includes a specialized LD teacher and teaching assistant, along with the support of a speech/language pathologist, social worker, reading specialist, occupational therapist, and assistive technology specialist. Often, the teacher and specialists will co-teach. Other times, the specialists themselves will teach the class or work individually with students in small groups outside of the classroom setting. Cove has a staff of over 85 individuals, a nearly two to one ratio of students to teachers.

    Cove is unique in our approach to the whole child. All aspects of learning from academic to social and emotional development are addressed when a child enters Cove. As the name suggests, Cove provides a safe haven or shelter for children who have not been able to find a good fit in other academic settings.
