The EST consists of Aurora Waldorf School teachers who directly provide extra academic or developmental support to students, together with other teachers who study and engage the remedial aspects of Waldorf Education. While the EST curriculum aims to identify and meet the needs of every student, it does not encompass the capacity to fully remediate learning disabilities.
Written parent permission is required for any ongoing schedule of services. EST members and the Faculty work together to best allocate the resources for these services. Parents who wish their student to receive a higher level of help may elect to engage AWS teachers or other tutoring providers outside of the school day setting. For needs which may go beyond the scope of our AWS resources, such as the need for a medical or an Educational/Psychiatric evaluation, the EST maintains a list of providers for resources consistent with our understanding of child development.
