Learning Pathways helps students cope with difficulties incurred as a result of specific language disabilities with the goal of increasing proficiency in reading, spelling, penmanship, writing, and vocabulary. 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. Learning Pathways sessions are included within the student's class schedule to ensure more rapid progress through this highly specialized course of study. The program is one to two years in length. An extra fee is required.
