The Special Services Program is a supplement to our Teacher Review Program designed to help families who have children with learning challenges. Enrolling your child in the Special Service Program provides:
The consultants are homeschooling mothers who have broad experience working with children with many different special needs. They have received extensive training in our methodology and the adaption of our curriculum and goals for the purpose of helping the struggling student achieve his goals. Special service consultants are also available to assist families as well as consultants when designing a curriculum. We have broad experience working with many learning challenges, behavioral issues, and emotional issues.
Special Services: Grades Pre-K–5: No Charge / Grades 6–12: $35
Signing up in the Basic Level will provide added resources and job aids for your student. (Note: While we recommend that students who are working at two or more grade levels below their age, sign up for Special Services, MODG does not require enrollment in our Special Services Program unless students are working significantly below grade level.) It is important to note that signing up in our Special Services Program is an internal designation. This information does not show up on any document nor is it shared unless mom requests this information be shared (for example: when extra help is needed for the child in his future). The student's transcript may have courses indicating the course was modified if he is working at a significantly lower level. It also provides access to additional levels of support:
Special Services Planning Consultation (available April through August): $150
Mom meets with the consultant and the Special Service consultant in a consultation in order to develop a complete educational plan for the student. The Special Service consultant is able to provide a detailed report for the student for the year.
Special Services Additional Consultation: $100
This plan is perfect for the mom who does not need an entirely specialized educational plan for her child but instead needs to modify the current plan. The Special Service consultant will meet with the family consultant to look over the existing educational plan, make recommendations for modifications, as well as provide additional resources. These will be discussed with the parents in a consultation, with both the consultant and the Special Services consultant, dedicated to the SS student. There is no written report at this level.
For more information on the additional levels of service, please contact your consultant. She can help determine the best course of action for your child.
High School graduation is possible for our students with learning challenges. To graduate from MODG, the student must complete high school requirements for graduation. Your consultant can help you with this. If your child is unable to complete high school requirements, he can earn a Certificate of Completion. There is also the California High School Proficiency Exam (www.chspe.net ). Talk to your consultant for more information.
Special Services Learning Support Classes
Since 2015, we have offered an online four year Learning Support program track tailored to high school students who are enrolled in our Special Services program or looking for a slower pace with their classes. These courses are adapted from our existing syllabi and designed to approach the material with more visual aids and weekly meetings with a writing tutor. Families can discuss this option with their consultants and fill out the SS-LS application form if interested.
