Traditional Program

The Traditional Program is for students ages 7-11. This program
 focuses on establishing foundation skills and plugging the gaps in phonics, reading,
comprehension, writing and math caused by their language-based learning differences.

The core curriculum is dePaul Structured Linguistics (DPSL) Orton-Gillingham based, a researched based, proven method of teaching children with learning disabilities. The program incorporates specific, direct, multisensory instruction in an enjoyable education format.

Students in the Traditional Program have DPSL, Math, Oral Reading, Science, Social Studies, Writing and Semantics classes as well as Recess and PE daily. Art and music classes are each held once a week. All classes are highly structured, sequential, teacher directed and paced to maintain the interest and attention of the student.

The multisensory teaching approach is used in all classes, allowing students to hear, see, feel and move while learning core skills.

Students are taught in small classes, with an 8:1 student teacher ratio.
