Working with Dyslexic Children
Compass High School has created a supportive yet academically challenging environment where a student with dyslexia can thrive. Through the hiring of Master’s level Reading and Writing specialists, dynamic counselors and study skills trainers, as well as the implementation of a comprehensive curriculum, our school was designed with student success in mind. At Compass High School, we give your child the support and techniques he or she will need to reach their full academic potential.
Ways We Work With Dyslexia
Despite being creative, ambitious and curious, children with dyslexia may struggle with the mastery of a few language-based skills such as reading, spelling, communication or calculation. We teach students with any and all of the following learning profiles:
- Verbal Dyslexia
- Visual Dyslexia
- Phonological Dyslexia
Through our Essential Skills program, we can offer remediation of significant challenges related to Reading, Composition and Math. We utilize evidence-based teaching techniques to support our students in their areas of challenge and ignite their love of learning. Students may also elect to receive additional services such as Speech Therapy and Educational Therapy as needed.
We are a Comprehensive High School
We also work with students that have the following learning differences:
- Mild to moderate ADHD
- Motivated individuals with other reading, writing, verbal, social or mathematical difficulties
- Students interested in pursuing further education
