    Big Springs Educational Therapy Center and School has been providing help for children with learning disabilities for over 35 years. We provide educational assessments to diagnose learning disabilities and give recommendations for programs, compensations, and strategies to help children who are struggling academically.

    At Big Springs, we believe it is critical for children with learning differences to achieve academic success and maintain grade level in non-reading subjects while learning to read. We offer a curriculum including science, social studies, math, literature, art, music, drama, physical education, and computers.  In addition, a school psychologist is on site.
