TRAVERSE is on a mission to provide a holistic, flexible, challenging, interest-driven education for all young people. We recognize that each learner is unique and that disability status or prior access to high-quality education does not predict a child’s potential or ability to learn. Because TRAVERSE is a structured program with flexibility built-in, it can support learners in moving at their own pace, making choices about their learning, and structuring their schedule however is best for them, our academic program is customizable for learners with a wide range of ability levels and learning needs. Each learner, regardless of disability status, develops an individualized learning plan along with their Learning mentor and family. When this plan is developed, special attention will be paid to how to best support each student’s unique needs. As homeschoolers, each family is welcome to adjust, modify, or supplement their child’s TRAVERSE experience according to their needs and preferences.
Supports that TRAVERSE may incorporate into an individual learning plan include:
- Adjustments of academic material to improve learner accessibility
- Modifications to content requirements
- Adjustments to experiential learning opportunities to account for individual needs
- More structured social and academic schedules
- Increased frequency of check-ins with the Learning mentor
- Support connecting with tutoring or local special education services*
For learners who require more intensive academic or behavioral support, the TRAVERSE team will review individual needs as part of the application process. If you have questions about whether TRAVERSE could be the right fit for your child, we encourage you to contact us. Although we may not be able to accommodate all the learning needs of our initial partners, we are striving to increase our capacity to do so in the future.
*Some states allow homeschooled students with disabilities to access special education services from their local district. Prisma will work with families to determine if this is a possibility in your location.
