Learning Differences: Resources

Child Find

Child Find is a continuous process of public awareness activities, screening and evaluation designed to locate, identify, and refer as early as possible all young children with disabilities and their families who are in need of Early Intervention Program (Part C) or Preschool Special Education (Part B/619) services of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

The liaison for Texoma Christian School is Kaye Allen.  To initiate the process or simply ask questions contact our liaison to discuss your child's concerns.

Landmark College:  Summer Programs for students with Learning Differences

Landmark College offers several Summer Programs to assist students with learning differences. We have created special short term summer programs for younger high school students, graduating high school seniors, and colleges around the country.

All the programs are designed to enable students to identify their learning strengths and differences, to learn specific strategies to be successful in formal academic settings, and to give participants the opportunity to make significant changes in an intentional and supportive academic community.

Note: No applicant is required to have a diagnosed learning disability to participate in any Landmark College summer program.
