“One very important goal here at The Brighton School – provide each student with a multisensory approach to overcoming literacy difficulties (dyslexia) in the classroom.” – Theresa Hastings, Admissions Director and Director of Therapy, CALT, iCALP
All therapies are Orton-Gillingham based—working on memory, processing speed and auditory discrimination.
Multi-sensory learning continues through all grade levels
Small Classes—we strive to keep classes small knowing that students with learning differences require very focused, precise, and individualized instruction.
“Attention and focus are the glue—Keeps all the learning there in their minds. They need to be able to move and wiggle whether it is in a wobble chair, bouncy ball, or a standing desk with a swinging footrest. Then they can get that energy going and it allows them to focus and pay attention more.” – Cheryl Ollmann, M. Ed. Principal and Director of Academics and Instruction, CALT, iCALP Hands-on, multi-sensory techniques are incorporated into every aspect of daily instruction, which allow us to create powerful learning experiences unlike any other learning environment and classroom.
“We feel it is extremely important to have highly qualified teachers who have obtained a master’s degree, a degree in dyslexia education, and additional instructional certification. Our teaching staff is composed of a large number of both Certified Academic Language Therapist (CALT) and Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP).”
