The Laurel School of Princeton offers a range of innovative reading programs for dyslexic students. Our expert teachers use a small group setting to allow each student to receive individualized attention.
The Orton-Gillingham and Wilson Reading programs are designed to be diagnostic, prescriptive, and tailored to each student’s needs.
These methods focus on decoding and comprehension to help the students’ ability to process the written word. With the use of a multi-sensory approach, including integrative technology, students can truly engage with language. This allows them to overcome the challenges they face in reading and writing. Regular assessments, both standardized and as a natural part of the curriculum, are used to determine student progress and tailor lessons to their specific needs.
In addition to the Orton-Gillingham and Wilson curriculum, other reading programs are used to engage students. The range of available learning modalities allows the curriculum to be flexible and completely adaptable to the needs of each student. Programs include:
Students in grades one through eight with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences benefit from the Laurel School’s innovative programs. Small class size means each student receives plenty of one-on-one attention from instructors who have vast experience in teaching those who have dyslexia and similar challenges. All educators at the school undergo training in the LETRS® program, which gives them a core understanding of the mechanisms of language that they will teach students.
