When parents are confronted with the possibility that their child has a learning disability, they tend not to know even how to begin to address the situation. Since a child’s learning challenge can be accompanied by emotional and/or social issues, the number of professionals parents may have interact act with can be daunting. Ark Academic Services frees parents from the responsibility of being the coordinator of a disparate group of professionals that will decide their child’s educational fate.

There is definitely an Ark advantage. Too often there can be disconnect among the various professionals—educational psychologist, teachers, and, possibly, legal advisor—who serve parents. Ark provides consolidation and integration of services which ultimately yields reassurance as well as convenience to parents. By choosing Ark Academic Services, parents can ensure that assessment (educational testing), instruction (tutoring), and advocacy are intertwined in a long-term strategic plan that aids the academic welfare of their child.

Ark Academic Services is a figurative and literal vehicle sustaining the academic lives of children. The path that led Dr. Haitz—founder of Ark—started at his studies at an Ivy League university, changed trajectory during his work experiences, and concluded with a moral call to help those underserved by the education system. Dr. Haitz possesses fifteen years’ work experience in which he has instructed students whose academic performance ranged from poor to advanced; he constructed Ark upon the conviction that access to challenging and supportive education is a human right.

Although Ark determinedly serves the entirety of the special education population (ranging from learning disabled/different to gifted), its long-term mission is to promote the potential of 2E (twice exceptional) students. 2E students—sometimes known as “gifted learning disabled”—experience challenges and contradictions in their schooling. Their strengths often disguise difficulties and their unique learning situations do not become apparent until much later in life. Ark firmly believes that 2E students possess traits and talents that lead to satisfying lives that can be of benefit to society. By providing appropriate assessment, nuanced instruction, and strategic advisement, Ark empowers the 2E population.
