About Us

Miriam is the premier educational hub for children with learning differences in the St. Louis area. We empower unique learners by building confidence and a foundation for success at our K-12 school, as well as through our outreach programs. Our students’ challenges often include specific learning disabilities, ADHD, autism, speech/language disorders, anxiety and sensory processing differences.

Why Miriam?

Because not all great minds think alike. We meet students where they are, taking a strengths-based approach to a truly individualized education.

We are finally in an environment where the staff ‘gets it.’ They understand that every child is a unique learner, and they work hard to cater to the needs of each child with individualized learning plans.
