Port’s Vincent Smith School is offering a summer program for students in grades four through eighth with learning disabilities, including ADD, ADHD, Asperger Syndrome, and expressive and receptive language processing issues. The school is currently accepting applications for the program.
The program will run three sessions: Session One: July 7—July 18, Session Two: July 21—Aug. 1, or Session Three: Aug. 4—Aug. 15. Parents have the option to enroll their child in one, two, or all three sessions. The program will run daily from 9 a.m. to noon.
