The Learning Pathways program serves a small group of students, focusing on skills and strategies through a personalized program inspired by the principles of Orton-Gillingham. Student and teacher work together to build academic confidence as a foundation for future independence. Learning Pathways occupies one period in the student’s schedule. The program lasts one or two years and requires an additional fee.The Orton-Gillingham approach – a sequential, multisensory, phonetically based system of instruction – is implemented in an individualized one-to-one teaching situation. Multisensory learning simultaneously involves the visual, auditory, and tactile pathways to enhance learning. The course includes word attack for reading and spelling, penmanship, vocabulary building, reading comprehension, written and oral composition, organizational study skills, and self-advocacy.
