Mission Statement:

To equip our students with the highest quality of education in an environment suitable for their different learning styles; while providing them with the tools necessary to be successful individuals in society.

Philosophy/Belief Statement: To be the best learning environment and provide the best educational experience for all students with or without learning challenges.
School History: Dickens Sanomi Academy (DSA) was cofounded by an educator of over 30 years (myself) who is the mother of a child with autism, a licensed behavioral analyst (Mr. H), and a business management consultant (Mr. Woody) who sought to create a “common sense” approach to enhance the lives of children in both the special education and the traditional education system. In rearing a child with autism, and experiencing the challenges in different school settings, DSA was created to tackle these exact difficulties. The belief of seeing every child as an individual, thereby following Dr. Newell Kephart’s (the author of’ learning Disabilities’ and ‘An Educational Adventure’) approach of “the power of Observation "and then creating an individualized experiential education based on data collected, that would prove effective for every learner. The objective was to not allow the label to define the child but to find the child within that label, and build on the strengths of the child while teaching him the skills needed to function in society. We believe every child is capable of learning.
