Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison, Steven Spielberg all have two things in common. They were successful, and they all had dyslexia.
At GRASP, we want parents with children who have dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia to know that their children have a unique way of learning and processing information that sets them apart. Their way of learning doesn’t stop them from achieving their highest goals, they simply require the highest standards of learning that education can provide. GRASP can help.
Does your child have dyslexia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia?
Dyslexia, dysgraphia and dyscalculia cause learning difficulties with reading, writing, spelling and math. You may not realize that your child’s instruction doesn’t match their learning style. What you may see is anxiety, depression or anger, as frustration mounts because your child isn’t learning. We know your child is intelligent, they just learn in a different way. A simple screening can determine if your child has signs of dyslexia, dysgraphia or dyscalculia.
At GRASP, students can be honest about their challenges in the learning process with teachers who are equipped to change the model. Our teachers are trained in the Orton-Gillingham methodology, an intensive, phonics-based, multisensory approach that involves three pathways of learning: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Instructors tie words, figures, and numbers with experience to create lessons rooted in memory. It is never a matter of ‘if’ the student grasps the concept, only ‘how’.
The only thing that separates GRASP from other schools is that it is made up of a student body united by their challenges, and teachers present to their needs. The GRASP Academy has the same hours as other county schools with the same vision and mission for its students. We also have a growing list of clubs and afterschool activities, as well as regular athletics.
- Home-zoned Middle School Athletics
- Lego Robotics Team
- Drama Club
- Safety Patrol
- Sports Club
- Extended Day
The quality of our instruction surpasses that of any private school. Our teachers, many with master’s and doctorate degrees, think beyond the standards. Teachers have the freedom to individualize instruction to make learning a joy for all of our students. That is why we reach beyond the standards.
