For some students, additional support within the classroom is needed in order for their God-given gifts to shine. Accommodations and modifications are provided through our Student Learning Profile (SLP) program.
To receive accommodations or modifications at Maryville Christian School, a child must have:
A. A Psycho-Educational assessment performed by a psychologist
B. A diagnosis by a professional in the medical field.
Medical professionals include:
- Medical Doctors
- Speech/Language Pathologists
- Physical Therapists
- Occupational Therapists
The assessment/diagnosis of the child is the responsibility of the parent. In addition, it is the parent's responsibility to provide MCS with a copy of the assessment/diagnosis report. This copy of the assessment/diagnosis report will be kept on file with the SLP Coordinator. It does not become a part of the student's permanent record and is not forwarded to other institutions in the event the student transfers or graduates unless specifically requested by the parents.
Once a current assessment report is provided to the school, a SLP Team will review the results and determine the accommodations and/or modifications that can be provided by MCS. The assessment is valid for 3 years. After that time, the parent must have the child reassessed in order to continue receiving accommodations/modifications at MCS.
The SLP Program is provided at additional costs based on the level of accomodations needed by the student. This could range from between $400 - $800 per year.
One-on-one Resource Instruction can also be provided for Special Needs students in reading, language arts, and math at a cost of $2,500 per year. Contact the SLP Coordinator for more information about this program and related fees at 865-681-3205 ext 246.
