How does your program work?

Beth Ellen Nash answers: How does your program work?

I’m Beth Ellen Nash, the founder of Wings to Soar Online Academy. Watch this short welcome video for a quick overview of what we offer at Wings to Soar Online Academy and answer a bit about “How does your program work?”

If you are like me and prefer to read rather than watch a video:

I’m Beth Ellen Nash and I founded Wings to Soar Online Academy. Our passion is helping dyslexics and other outside-the-box learners. We help them gain the skills and confidence to not just survive but thrive in school and in life.

My staff and I help outside-the-box learners break the chains of shame, failure, and inadequacy that so often surround learning challenges. We empower outside-the-box learners to become the best versions of themselves. We help them embrace their unique wiring and its flip-side strengths.

While we specialize in dyslexia intervention, we love helping families thrive. We do this through our whole-person, personalized approach to education.

Are you looking for homeschooling programs for a child with special needs? Do you have a child who is an outside-the-box learner? Do you have concerns about your child’s learning? Need after-school intervention?

So how does this whole process work?

Request FREE Just-Right Level Placement Assessments

The first step is to fill out the Just-Right Level Assessment request form.

Personalized Learning Guide PDF

After you submit the assessment request form watch for an email with a link to a comprehensive PDF. It is a Personalized Learning Guide based on what you say on your initial request form. If you don’t see it, check your spam folder, and if you find it there, mark it as NOT spam so you receive future emails from us. It has links to the offline assessments you requested. It also includes links to articles I’ve written about your learning concerns.

Online Assessments

Within 1-3 business days, our staff will set your child up in the online academic placement assessments you requested. Watch for an email with instructions and login information. These assessments with help us identify your child’s skill gaps. We’ll back down to their just-right level so they can be independently successful.

Do these assessments over the next few days when your child is fresh, alert, and able to give their best focus. Do NOT help, other than to encourage them to do their best. The assessments are adaptive. Your help will artificially move them into material that is too difficult.

Then pop me an email ([email protected]) and let my team know to look for your assessment results.

2-Week Jump Start

When we send your child’s academic assessment results, we’ll invite you to sign up for our $47 2-Week Jump Start. This will be a Path to Success Personalized Learning Plan created for your child based on:

  • the information on your assessment request form
  • the results of your child’s assessment
  • and any extra information you choose to share.

Our team will use your child’s initial academic assessment results to create a Path to Success™ Personalized Learning Plan for whichever subjects you are interested in.

During your Getting Started week, will start with any additional placement assessments needed based on the initial assessments and get a taste of each of the programs.

During the Ramp Up week, our plan will ease gradually in to using all the components of Path to Success™ Personalized Learning Plan.

How much does it cost?

Your commitment can be as little as month-to-month. Most of our reading, spelling, language, and vocabulary intervention plans are $197-227 per month. Or you can choose cost savings with a 4-12 month full-payment up front. We offer military, financial hardship, multi-child, full-time Christian ministry, and multiple special needs adoptions discounts/partial scholarships.

Given that we customize a package for each student, full-enrollment options range from $597-6997 for the year. (The lower end would be for a child who does not have dyslexia or other learning challenges and would not include intervention programs). Most full-enrollment packages including intervention are in the $2997-4997 range.
