Students who participate in this program have several weekly appointments with qualified Learning Specialists. In addition to accommodations, students receive 1:1 instruction in Multi-sensory Language, Learning Strategies and/or time management and organization.

Students may also take part in social support groups and social coaching. PASS is a fee-based program with limited enrollment.
