THE WOODLANDS, TX -- On January 9-11, 2020, The Woodlands Christian Academy hosted the National Institute for Learning Development (NILD) South-Central Regional Conference. The theme for the conference was “Examining the Role of Cognition in Meeting the Needs of Students with Learning Disabilities.” The annual conference provides an opportunity for educational therapists from across the country to receive training on best practices to maintain their certification and better serve students. According to NILD presenter and program director at Houston First Baptist, Bridget Hughes, “I am incredibly grateful to TWCA for their hospitality and allowing us access to their beautiful campus and exceptional facilities. The Academic Center for Empowerment (ACE) program at this school stands out among the rest – the people in charge of the day-to-day and the support received from school leadership is a testament to why Warrior students are thriving.”

The ACE program at Woodlands Christian is a valuable resource for students in all grades. Students with learning disabilities, such as Dyslexia, ADHD, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, and Anxiety Disorder, are given personalized attention that helps them be successful in the classroom. The program takes place during the school day so students and parents do not have to rush after school to attend extra tutoring sessions. Since starting the program, Dr. Teressa Voltz, ACE Director has reported significant results, “We have seen academic skills as well as IQ scores increase. Students have become more confident and have developed and recognized their own learning strategies that helps them be more independent in the classroom. Learning has become an easier process for our students.”

TWCA is now enrolling for the 2020-2021 school year. Learn more at TWCA.net.
