Educational Therapy, Dyslexia Remediation, Tutoring

Whatever you want to call it, we are happy to provide you with the information you requested about our research-based services for dyslexia.

We provide research-based intervention for dyslexia that is known as Orton-Gillingham or Structured Literacy.  This approach entails an explicit, sequential, and repetitive multisensory methodology that takes students through three important stages of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, and syllabication with orthographic patterns.

Dyslexia remediation is very effective, but it is a long and intensive effort. We typically meet with students three or four times a week, throughout the year, usually for about 2-3 years. Although it may not take that long for your child to be reading at grade level, the entire program is always taught to completion so that they might have access to all language skills–independent of grade-level reading.

To do this, we enter a long-term relationship. Because that long-term relationship is so important, all our remediation specialists are dedicated dyslexia professionals who have a personal connection to dyslexia. Our team is working to create a legacy that not only will benefit your child, but also our kids and grandkids.

The field of educational therapy is demanding and dynamic. All our specialists are trained in dyslexia remediation by our director, Pamela Taylor, MS EdPsych, an educational therapist, Certified Dyslexia Practitioner, Certified Orton-Gillingham Teacher, and Master Certified Barton Tutor. In addition to intensive dyslexia remediation training, all team members receive additional training in educational therapy on an on-going basis–almost a hundred hours a year.

We typically schedule sessions Monday-Friday, from early afternoon until 7:30 PM. We have limited Saturday sessions available. Sessions are reserved appointments that stay the same from week to week (although each day of the week might be a different time). Afternoon sessions starts at half past the hour and last fifty minutes. Morning sessions starts on the hour.

Sessions are one-to-one, and we use a “best-practices” team approach.  This means that your will have a team of 2-3 regular specialists working with them and the support of our entire staff of educational therapists. This approach provides our students a variety of perspectives and skills that allow us to meet your Learner’s needs as they change–while challenging them and keeping them interested.

We use a tuition model that is based on the number of sessions reserved per week. Tuition includes progress reports, practice materials, accommodations support, and consultations as needed–including help with accommodations planning with schools. Progress notes are sent home once a month and practice materials for progress are sent home after sessions.
