Our mission at Manus is to help students with learning barriers achieve academic success. We fulfill this mission through four services: 1) Manus Academy, our school; 2 Manus Tutoring, our after-school tutoring services and accredited course offerings; 3) Manus Institute, our teacher-training services; and 4) Manus Curriculums, our publishing department.
In our academy, we work with students with academic barriers, such as: learning disabilities; language disorders; attention deficit hyperactivity disorder; pervasive developmental disorder, such as autistic disorder; anxiety; and depression. Our unique academic process provides students with an opportunity to learn well and at a pace most appropriate for their individual learning profiles. This process not only includes customizing students' instruction but their learning environment, too.
In our institute, we train teachers in other schools who wish to increase their effectiveness in working with students with academic barriers. (We also offer some self-training for teachers and parents on this website through links to white papers or roll-overs located on certain pages. These sources of information cover topics on specific learning barriers and how to successfully manage them.)
At Manus Curriculums, our academic store, we offer our academic process and curricula to teachers working with students with specific needs. The process and curricula are research-based and have been subjected to rigorous in-house testing. The end results are strong educational programs where every student shows progress.
