How the DePaul School Teaches Music

For all traditional program students at the dePaul School, music class, with a focus on the violin, happens once a week. In the delta program, students have the option to add the violin to their schedule after the school day.  

Dyslexic Strength....Inventing, Planning & Making!

Utilizing one of our fantastic student's strengths! Water cooler was not working so we brought in this dyslexic young man who fixed it (he can fix anything!) -- figured out the problem and came up wth a solution! Way to go:)

Let's Do Lunch!

I had the good fortune of having lunch with one of our students today. He had selected my name from the Treasure Box:) I always enjoy these lunch dates as it keeps me connected with our students on a personal level. It also reminds me of how difficult their lives must have been in a traditional school setting. This student has auditory processing disorder (which often co-exists with dyslexia) which for him, results in distinct pauses throughout conversation as he processes what was said.
