We understand that children with learning differences, such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, require teaching styles and methodologies that are not found in a typical classroom.
The Roig Academy is among a specialized independent network of schools throughout the world that are designed for children with learning differences.
Educators at The Roig Academy have a thorough understanding of the learning differences that each of its students may be diagnosed with.
