Our Approach

At The Lighthouse we take an individualized “whole child” approach.  This enables us to determine the most effective interventions whether academic, social, developmental, and/or emotional for each child.  We enable the child to experience success both through accommodations and through remediation. The accommodations allow for immediate success; the remediation leads to lasting success.
