Who We Are

"Nothing is impossible, the word itself says 'I'm possible'!"

- Audrey Hepburn

Often children who experience difficulty learning find it easier to fall back on "can't"; "I can't do math," "I can't read."

At Ogden Preparatory Academy, we encourage a culture where "can't" doesn't exist. Children who believe they "can't" are encouraged to try, with the support they need to make the small changes necessary for learning a new skill.

On this site, we will regularly post ideas and tips for parents, stories of hope, celebrations of learning, and links to important classroom information for all grade levels. Our aim is support, not just for students who struggle, but for you, the parent, as well.

We welcome your suggestions and questions.

How do we change the world?

The same way we help our students!

Love, support, and little changes that can make a big difference in the long run.

Together, we can make all the difference in the life of a child who currently thinks "I can't"!

A Survival Kit...

Having a child with special needs can be difficult. It doesn't matter whether your child's needs are mild or severe; it changes the way your child's education works, requires extra work for both you and them, and puts extra stress on the whole family. We are here to support you and your child. However, sometimes reaching out to other families of children with disabilities can help. Having a sense of humor can help. Having an emotional toolkit you can use to support yourself and your child can help. In this article from the Huffington Post, Kathy Radigan has some good suggestions for stocking your survival kit.
