Student Support Services

Our Student Support Services coordinates accommodations, reinforcement, and educational therapy sessions to insure the effective education of students who may require additional help.

Orton Gillingham

The Orton Gillingham Approach is an individualized program that helps students who are having difficulty in the areas of reading and spelling develop an understanding of how our language works.

The Orton Gillingham program teaches children sounds, rules and strategies to help better understand language in the areas of reading and spelling and penmanship difficulties such as dyslexia. It is intended for students of all grades regardless of reading level.

Each new multi sensory learning session has students discovering an understanding of how our language works.


There is no additional cost for students who receive services throughout the school day
