Dyslexia and other reading disabilities
Although reading disorders and dyslexia cannot be broken down into specific individual categories, each individual child has different levels of comprehension. We can observe these broad categories and develop strategies to accommodate children that fall into each.
Attention Deficit Disorder (with or without Hyperactivity)
Any parent of a child with ADHD knows intuitively their child has a special need. Naturally, many parents of students diagnosed with ADHD wonder if their child is eligible for special education services. Despite over two decades of increasing awareness about ADHD and ADD, there is still confusion about how schools handle these students.
No matter where your child is on the autism spectrum, there’s a place for them at eAchieve. We understand every child’s needs are different, so our experienced special education instructors work closely with our special needs students to develop strategic and effective lesson plans for every individual.
Speech and Language/Communication Disabilities
A language disorder affects an individual’s ability to learn, understand, and/or use language. This can affect spoken, written or sign language. Disorders become disabilities when they have an adverse effect on a student’s educational performance. Speech and language therapy services are included in special education.
Other Health Impairments
These health impairments can affect children’s ability to focus, participate, and retain knowledge learned in the traditional classroom setting. With the freedom of the special ed program at eAchieve, students living with health impairments can get individual lesson plans centered on what methods allow them to learn best, all while taking these classes when and where they feel most comfortable.
A visual impairment is any issue with vision that interferes with a student’s academics. For an official definition, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) defines it as “an impairment in vision that, even with correction, adversely affects a child’s educational performance. The term includes both partial sight and blindness.”
Hearing loss is usually categorized as slight, mild, moderate, severe or profound, based on how well someone can hear the frequencies commonly associated with speech. Regardless of the degree of hearing impairment, online learning for hearing impaired students or deaf students is an option well worth considering.
Emotional Behavioral Disabilities
eAchieve Academy offers online courses that give students with behavioral and emotional disorders the opportunity design their personalized path towards education. Our online special education courses allow students the freedom to learn how, when, and where they prefer, to optimize strategies and inspire students to take on the responsibility of improving their knowledge.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
If you and your child are dealing with the aftermath of a serious traumatic brain injury, one of the biggest question marks staring you down is how your child will continue his or her education. Although bricks and mortar schools make a good faith effort to accommodate special needs students, the school environment itself presents difficulties, both physically and socially, for students with traumatic brain injuries. Fortunately, there’s an alternative: eAchieve Academy.
Significant Developmental Delay (SDD)
Even at the Kindergarten and elementary school level, children who have been diagnosed with Significant Developmental Delay (SDD) face significant difficulties. Whether it’s a physical issue that makes getting from one class to another difficult, a cognitive problem that frustrates learning, or an inability to comport with social rules, SDD can be a major hurdle to any child’s education.
Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)
Online learning through eAchieve Academy not only removes the social stigma SLD students face in conventional classroom settings, but it also provides a learning path focused on each student’s strengths and weaknesses. eAchieve learners can work at their own pace, spending more time on concepts they find difficult and less time on those that come easy to them.
All students, including those with mild to severe intellectual disability have the right to quality education. With online learning through eAchieve, every student has the opportunity to meet suitably challenging expectations and progress at their own pace, on their own schedule.
A wide variety of topics are planned for students during each school year and are covered in a course called Study Skills. These topics and services are differentiated to meet each student’s needs as dictated by his/her IEP. Themes such as organization, time management, individual academic support, accessing resources and assistive technology, study skills, behavior management, social skills, self-advocacy, post-high school transition planning, access to Department of Vocational Rehabilitation and community/state resources, employability skills, and job and career training. Students may also receive individual assessment, instruction, remediation, and enrichment activities/resources.

Our goal is to discover what roadblocks may be in the way and help remove those barriers.

We take great pride in helping special needs students who had trouble reaching their full potential in a traditional classroom environment.
What is an IEP?
An IEP is more than just a written legal document (or “plan”). It’s a map that lays out the program of special education instruction, supports, and services kids need to make progress and thrive in school. Each program is designed to meet a student’s unique needs. The term IEP is also used to refer to the written plan that spells out the specific types of help kids will get. Both the program and the written plan are covered by special education law, or the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
What is a 504 Plan?
504 plans are formal plans that schools develop to give kids with disabilities the support they need. That covers any condition that limits daily activities in a major way. These plans prevent discrimination. And they protect the rights of kids with disabilities in school. They’re covered under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. This is a civil rights law.
