Counselors, Distance Learning Schools are a Great Option for Special Students
by: Julie Jackson

Are you a counselor who wishes that you could offer your special students more? Distance learning schools are a great option for those students. With the wide availability of the internet, distance learning can now be a useful tool in the education of students.

Online high schools offer a flexible schedule that can accommodate the needs of many different types of students. Their education can be tailored to suit them as an individual. Each student learns in a different manner and with the distance learning option, education can now be presented in different forms to accommodate each and every learning style.

For example, for a student who has ADD/ADHD the class work can be broke up into tiny segments, enabling the student to stay interested and focused during each and every activity. A customized educational opportunity awaits the students in the virtual world. They will be able to work at their own pace and at the right grade level. For example, a student who has ADHD could possibly be a freshman who is getting left behind in the course work, but that student could actually be capable of far more if the course work was adapted to fit their needs. Once it has been adapted to the student, it could be found that that particular student is capable of working at a tenth grade level. In a traditional school setting would they be able to do this?

Today’s technological advances have enabled education to go above and beyond for all students. It doesn’t matter who the student is, each student now has the capability to receive an education tailored for them enabling them to be well prepared for the future, no matter what. The No Child Left Behind Law is just that, no child will be left behind thanks to the distance learning environment.

The curriculum of the distance learning school is based upon the same foundation as that of a traditional school. Basic subject matter will be taught and learned by the student. The student will also have the opportunity to be placed in advanced courses as well. Let’s not forget about the physical education requirements. Online high schools can even offer this course as well. The quality of the education is equal to the type of education that a traditional school offers their students. With an accredited distance learning program, the student’s education will be recognized by future prospective colleges as well as employers.

As you can now see, educational advances have come a long way thanks to the technology that we now have available. Even though an online high school may not be the traditional means of acquiring an education, it still is able to offer the students a quality education that will be tailored to suit the individual students’ personal learning style and educational needs. In some cases, it can even be an exceptionally better option than that of a traditional education.

So, go ahead and do your research, educate the parents and don’t be afraid to offer your students a quality education that is specifically designed for them.
