Why Children Struggle

  • Some children have a learning disability that makes reading difficult to learn.
  • Some come to school without the literacy experiences (exposure to books) they need to become readers.
  • Some children struggle because they’ve received poor or inconsistent reading instruction.

How do we address these problems?

We understand that reading and writing are integral to the student’s success in all subjects.

Using both the Montessori and Orton Gillingham approach, we focus on:

  • Phonics
  • Decoding
  • Reading fluency
  • Comprehension

Students learn to read, analyze, think critically, and compare and contrast literature to support personal opinion and perspective.
