Through individualized, multi-sensory, and research-based teaching approaches, Trident Academy will assist cognitively capable K-8 children diagnosed with language-based learning differences and Aspergers/HFA and prepare them academically and socially to transition.
Trident Academy is a K-8 independent school and Center for Learning Differences Education located in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. For more than 40 years, The School for Language-Based Learning Differences has used the Orton-Gillingham approach to help students who have dyslexia and other learning differences. The School for Aspergers/HFA has highly trained faculty who work collaboratively with specialists in occupational, speech, and behavior therapy. Both Schools prepare students academically and socially to transition and thrive in a conventional learning environment. The Center for Learning Differences Education trains teachers, educates parents, and advocates to the community on behalf of children with functional and language based learning differences.
