Morning Academic Program for Grades 2-8 (June 18 - July 13)
We will begin accepting applications for our 2018 summer programs for Grades 2-8 on January 18.
Our morning academic program is designed for students from the outside community who have a learning disability, such as dyslexia, and/or an attention disorder, such as ADHD, that affects academic achievement.
Students in the morning academic program attend reading, writing, and math classes for 55 minutes each, plus recess. Class sizes are 6-8 students per teacher, instruction is explicit, structured, and multi-sensory. In each subject, care is taken to begin at a level where students can experience success before confidently moving on to more advanced skills.
Reading - Word Attack and Decoding, Fluency, Comprehension, Vocabulary, Spelling
Writing - Capitalization, Punctuation, Sentence Structure, Paragraph Development, Idea Organization
Math - Mathematical Concepts, Mathematical Operations, Computation, Word Problems
Teachers combine their experience and expertise with care and understanding, using a diagnostic-prescriptive approach to continually assess and address individual needs. Our teachers have been trained in Orton-Gillingham, Singapore Math, and The Writing Revolution, and they use these approaches to guide their instruction.
Our program is not designed for disruptive or oppositional students, for students with a diagnosis of autism or developmental/cognitive delay, or for students with emotional issues unrelated to a learning disability.
