So who are the children we work with? Who is a Wolf student? There really isn’t a simple way to describe them. We work with Complex Learners – children with more than one diagnosis, children with sensory, social and language difficulties, children who don’t fit into the box or match the label, children who should by all accounts be learning, but keep falling behind. These children have tremendous difficulty navigating a traditional classroom; they are at risk for isolation, depression, disengaging from school, and falling through the cracks of the educational system.
Complex Learners may be anxious, distractible, rigid, loud or shy, but they are also creative, clever, funny, passionate and persistent. Our work as parents and educators is to understand more about how they are “wired” and what supports will help them achieve their educational potential.
