Special Educational Needs
TCIS believes that there are many things that work together to make a student successful. The effective delivery of curriculum is important, but students also need access to resources in order to truly achieve their academic potential.
In some cases, students need specialized guidance or support to work through personal educational challenges. In other cases, students benefit from having a caring and knowledgeable professional to help work through emotional or social issues in order to work more effectively.
