Academic Support, Intervention, and Dyslexia Program
Our Student Academic Support, Intervention, and Dyslexia Program is available to all of our students.
Up to 20% of students are affected by dyslexia, and many students have ADHD/ADD, dyscalculia, or Central Auditory Processing Disorder, whether they have been diagnosed or not.
The goal of our Support and Intervention Program is to empower its students to discover the ways in which they learn best and to provide them with the tools they need to succeed. Students with dyslexia, ADHD, dyscalculia, etc. are often incredibly talented and gifted in many ways but may need additional academic support to help them reach their full potential.
We work to assess our students to ensure their specific learning needs are met, and we provide intervention and accommodation through our program.
The Key Goals of the Intervention Program include:
Assessment: Using tools to screen and assess students to discover which have difficulty with Phonological Awareness, Phonological Memory, Sound-Symbol Association, and Rapid Automatic Naming.
Intervention: Providing appropriate instruction and interventions to address particular learning differences and include multi-sensory, explicit, and sequential instruction.
Accommodation: Offering students extra support by determining helpful and appropriate accommodations or modification to their learning and/or student work load.
Parental Support: Helping parents find the resources they need via data, networking, and provide support.
Student Support: Helping students identify and appreciate their strengths and understand how to advocate for themselves as they move through their academic career.
