Overview

The Bedford School is an accredited private school in Fairburn, GA for children with specific learning disabilities and ADD/ADHD. The first LD school on the southside of Atlanta, Bedford offers small class size and a challenging academic curriculum in a modern multifaceted facilities.

The Bedford School is a non-profit organization dedicated to the remediation of specific learning disabilities for children in grades 1-9. A learning disability is generally defined as a cognitive dysfunction, frequently hereditary in nature, characterized by the inability to deal with written symbols, despite conventional instruction, adequate intelligence and socio-cultural opportunity. Some of the characteristics include short attention span, distractibility, variability in performance, reading, spelling, writing or math disabilities, poor organizational skills, and slowness in finishing work. Some specific diagnoses include dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, central auditory processing disorder (CAPD), non-verbal learning disability and Aspergers Syndrome.

The Bedford School is based on the idea that every human being should have the opportunity to become the very best person possible. For the child with the learning disability, this is difficult without proper intervention. He/she often becomes frustrated and gives up, resulting in feelings of inferiority and sometimes producing a weak self-image. At The Bedford School, students receive the proper academic remediation as well as participate in activities that help improve social skills and self-esteem. Once a child is prepared to transition to another educational environment, recommendations and assistance are provided to parents and the school as to the strengths, weaknesses, and needs of each student.
