New Perspectives - June, 1994 Issue #28 

BREHM PREPARATORY SCHOOL
Carbondale, Illinois
Dr. Richard Collins, Ex. Dir.
618-457-0371 

Brehm is committed to providing quality educational experiences for students with learning disabilities between the ages of 12 and 21, as well as addressing the social and emotional needs also. Individualized services are delivered by trained, experienced, and certified staff, and the school draws upon the resources of the college town in which they are located. 

In a newspaper article, a staff member commented that most of their students come to Brehm with low self-esteem. "They have to realize and believe they are not stupid, that they learn differently, that they have to understand how they learn differently. Once they learn they have a learning disability and they use strategies to enable them to learn and interact, their self-esteem usually improves. 

Students usually stay 2-3 years with many continuing on to local and other colleges that offer LD assistance. Students are accepted throughout the year.
