Why Brighton?

Brighton is leading the way for students with language-based learning differences.
Established in 1972 to serve students with dyslexia and other language-related learning differences, Brighton understands the complex nature of working with students who learn differently.
Our four-pronged approach develops the whole child.


Academic growth is a priority for our students despite their learning challenges.  We use evidence-based instructional programs and strategies that engage students visually, auditorily, tactilely, and kinesthetically.  Instruction that integrates multiple sensory pathways helps our learners connect to, recall and apply important academic concepts and skills.

Language Therapy:

Evidence-based therapeutic reading programs make it possible for students to successfully engage with oral and written language.  Daily therapeutic instruction leads to gains in reading, which positively influences performance in other classes.

Social-Emotional Development:

Understanding how to be a positive and productive member of a school community can be challenging for students who learn differently.  Intentional instruction paired with ample opportunities to practice social skills sets the stage for successful peer interactions and a positive school experience.

Executive Function Development:

Planning, organization, initiative and self-control are examples of executive function skills often under-developed in learning-different students, yet critical for success in and out of the classroom.  Because we take nothing for granted, executive function skill instruction is integrated into every classroom, every day.

We “teach students the way they learn.”

It’s more than our motto.  It’s our way of life, our way of thinking, our way of planning, and our way of teaching.  It is the very fabric of who we are.   

Are we the right choice for your child?

Once enrolled, your child will be a part of a school that understands their unique abilities and challenges and stands ready to support, encourage and teach. You will have a team in your corner; partners in the important job of preparing your child for whatever he or she dreams to do after leaving our campus.

Every journey to Brighton is different. We are eager to learn about yours, your child, and how we may serve your needs. We hope you will take the time to visit our campus and allow us to welcome you and your child into our unique and specialized community.
