Our Services

The College Success Program at Architects For Learning provides students with three tiers of support, each with different levels of support.

  • Level 1: Two hours of 1:1 instruction per week and daily check-ins/support
  • Level 2: One hour of 1:1 instruction per week and daily check-ins/support
  • Level 3: One hour of 1:1 instruction per week, or 30 minutes of 1:1 instruction and as needed check-ins/support

Across all levels, we provide 360-degree support for students, including:    

  • Individualized instruction to strengthen skills, strategies, systems, and habits  
  • Guidance to support generalization between sessions via text, email, Google docs, and/or phone
  • Consultation with college staff and other professionals to coordinate instruction 
  • Collaboration with parents  

What students need from us varies over time, so we structure our time each week to meet the ebb and flow of their needs. For example, we might decide not to meet during spring break but schedule a longer session the week before a big paper is due.

We keep track of the various ways we support students so we are sure to provide the support that’s needed over the course of the semester.

Virtual Sessions

Individualized instruction may be provided in our office or virtually.  We request at least 24 hours advanced notice if you need to switch from an in-person session to a virtual format.

Please be sure to use a laptop or desktop computer for all virtual sessions.  Cell phones and iPads do not allow students to access the features of Zoom that we rely on for instruction.

For virtual sessions, please be sure students are set them up for success in a room that offers privacy, a table or desk to work at, a power cord for their laptop, and a stable internet connection. Virtual learning and face-to-face learning both require students to be in environments that are free of distractions and conducive to learning. 

Please note that our policy is to end a virtual session under the following conditions:

  • Students log in on a cell phone
  • Students are in a location that does not support virtual learning (e.g., a car, their bed, outside, in a public space or environment that is noisy and distraction-filled)
  • Students do not have a stable internet connection
  • A student’s laptop battery dies

Missed Sessions/Cancellations

Should you need to cancel a scheduled session, please notify Tara Adams in our main office at least 24 hours in advance.  

The health of our staff and all of our families is important to us. If students are not feeling well or have had exposure to someone with Covid, we request that they cancel their session or work with their specialist virtually. Please note that our policy is to end the session if students present as too ill to benefit from instruction.

We will make every effort to reschedule canceled sessions. However, our staff’s flexibility with scheduling is generally limited, and we cannot guarantee that we will be able to make up missed sessions.

Insurance

We are primarily an academic organization and are not affiliated with any insurance companies. We do not bill insurance companies directly for our services. Individual sessions provided by a speech-language pathologist may be covered by your insurance if there is a diagnosis to support the nature of the services provided.  

Please check with your insurance company to determine whether such services are covered by your insurance plan.  

If our services are covered by insurance, you will be held responsible for payment, and we will provide you with statements that you may submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. 

Please note we will provide statements for services as of the date that you request them. No statements will be issued for services provided prior to receipt of your request.

We look forward to working with you!
