Learning Disabilities and Coding


Students with learning disabilities are often left out of conversations surrounding computer science education. At The Coding School, we see differences as assets, not detriments, and we’ve developed a customized program to support these students’ needs.


Our Inspiration

Brothers

This program was inspired by two brothers with learning disabilities who took our class and fell in love with coding.

While they typically faced difficulties concentrating and a lack of enthusiasm, the brothers displayed passion and focus in coding class, which also had a butterfly effect into their other academic subjects.

Brothers
Assistant Principal

The assistant principal, witnessing the boys’ academic improvements and newfound desire to become engineers, asked us to create a program to ensure students with learning disabilities can be empowered through coding.

As a response, we partnered with the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District to offer a coding program with the support needed for students with learning disabilities.

Coding program

Our goal in creating this initiative is to change the conversation surrounding learning disabilities through awareness and accessibility. We aspire to empower these students through coding, and moreover, help them see they can make meaningful contributions to the field of computer science.

Our program, codeConnects, was developed, in part, for students with learning disabilities. With one-on-one lessons, students go at their own pace and receive personalized instruction and support, which has enabled many students with learning disabilities to excel in computer science.
