The Learning Center 

 

       Welcome to the Learning Center at EMES. Staff members are Anne Carter, Joy Wilcox, and Sheila Paterson, Learning Specialists; Patti Taffel, Speech Language Pathologist and Jenn Fitch, Reading Specialist. We offer direct services to students in all academic areas as well as supervise paraeducators working with students. The Learning Center Staff help support students with a variety of learning styles and needs. We work in classrooms as well as in small tutoring rooms within the Learning Center space. We consult with certified staff as they help support students in all academic areas. Assessments are conducted in accordance with Vermont  and federal regulations to determine whether a student has a handicapping condition which significantly impacts learning. From there, if there is a disability that impacts learning, a plan (IEP) is developed which outlines specialized instruction for the child. Please contact your child's teacher if you suspect your child may have a disability. Your teacher will then contact the EST team and Learning Center staff.

Contact Information: Phone 223-7936 ext 307. Please leave a message for any one of us as we share the office phone. We are typically here between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm on school days. Joy Wilcox works only Tuesdays and Thursdays. All of us are available on email. This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

This is our third year of offering Unified Sports at EMES. The purpose of this program is to offer a competitive sporting environment for students with and without disabilities. Students bowl in the fall, snowshoe in the winter, and bocce in the spring. Athletes and partners practice once a week for about 8 weeks. They compete in a state wide tournament at the end of each season. Students volunteer to participate for each sport to work with their partners to be as independent as possible. If your or your child are interested in participating, please contact Sheila at 223-7936 ext 307.
