Boys and girls from ages four (4) through eighteen (18) years old who have average to gifted intellectual potential, but whose emotional, behavioral, and/or learning difficulties impact their ability to benefit from a regular education setting or sometimes even a special education program on a public school campus.
Some of our students have been diagnosed with one or more conditions:
- Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (ADHD)
- Specific Learning Disabilities
- Asperger's Syndrome
- "High-Functioning" Autism Spectrum Disorder
- Anxiety Disorders
- Mood Disorders (e.g., Bipolar, Depression)
- Sensory Integration Disorder
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Oppositional Defiant Disorder
- Tourette Syndrome
- Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Some of our students have never been diagnosed formally or qualified for special education supports through the public schools, but are slowly failing both academically and socially.
Mardan students are diverse in their personalities, strengths, and needs, but our school can become 'common ground' where each child is understood, accepted, and encouraged by both adults and peers.
