Unveiling the Power of Education for Teens with Behavioral Diagnoses
Dr. Kathy Fenger

What is the importance of a young adult who graduates from high school. There are many life-changing benefits for any student who receives a high school diploma, but for kids who are challenged with trauma, behavioral issues, autism and other mental health diagnosis that victory may very well look unachievable. Here are some of the outstanding reasons why we should support our kids and help stand by them as they may achieve one of their greatest successes. Join us as we look forward to celebrating the upcoming graduation on July 12th, 2024.  Contact LOGOS here: https://www.logosschool.org/ and phone number to schedule a tour of the LOGOS School: 314-997-7002.

For some students, summer break is a time to kick back, relax and enjoy. For others, summer break can be a major source of stress especially if they rely on school for safety, structure, and/or social/emotional connectedness. Losing those supports over the summer months can set students back and make the transition into the Fall more challenging. Parents whose children have academic gaps, need credit recovery and/or need social/emotional wellness during the summer often struggle to find summer enrichment programs or activities that meet their needs. LOGOS Summer Intensive Program can offer relief to families by providing academic and therapeutic support in a structured but flexible environment.

Though LOGOS does not assign daily homework as regular practice, because we are an individualized school, parents are always able to consult with their child’s teachers and therapists to create a “homework plan” for their student. This is especially useful for students whose goal is to return to the traditional school environment or students who may want extra enrichment activities. These plans are completely unique and can range anywhere from ten minutes of homework for math every other day, an extra book to read at home for one chapter per night, to a more traditional thirty minutes per class per evening plan. It all depends on the needs of the student.

How Therapeutic Schools Drive Personal and Academic Achievement through Social Emotional Learning

What Is Social-Emotional Learning?

Social-emotional learning helps adolescents build self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship management and responsible decision-making skills. These life skills increase the student’s ability to learn and help improve their attitude toward themselves and others, which leads to more positive social behaviors.
