Welcome to the Reading Specialists Page!
Dyslexia expert Sally Shaywitz describes dyslexia as "an island of weakness in a sea of strengths," associated "in many cases... with an ability to solve problems in original ways, to think not rotely but intuitively and holistically."
St. Laurence Catholic School is blessed to have two Reading Specialists who serve students in the following areas:
- Early intervention in PK-2nd grade, is offered and based on normed and criterion referenced tests, classroom observations and other scores.
- Basic Language Skills, a program designed by the Neuhaus Education Center, consists of pull-out groups for diagnosed dyslexics in grades 2nd-5th when the teacher and reading specialist determine there is an academic need.
- Literacy support is provided in grades 6th-8th.
