Learning disabilities classrooms tend to focus on the techniques of accommodation (teaching the child to adapt to the problem) and compensation (changing the learning environment so that learning tasks are less demanding). We believe that, although this approach is valuable in the short term, it is inadequate for actually solving the disabilities problem. It is somewhat like using aspirin to bring down a high fever–this may be totally necessary in the short term, but does nothing to actually cure the underlying problem that caused the fever. The programs utilized by Restored Hope Remedial Services work at actually eliminating the disabling impairment rather than responding to the symptoms.
