Working With A Dyslexic Student

Glenwood Academy Working With Dyslexia

If your child is not doing well in a traditional classroom setting and you are looking for Dyslexia Schools in Maryland, then Glenwood Academy, a private school providing elementary through high school classes, can help your child succeed.

Children with dyslexia deserve the opportunity to succeed and flourish and can do so in the right learning environment.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Dyslexia “symptoms can be difficult to recognize before your child enters school, but some early clues may indicate a problem.”

Some of the early clues the Mayo Clinic has identified are:

  • Reading at a level well below the expected level for the age of your child
  • Problems processing and understanding what he or she hears
  • Difficulty comprehending rapid instructions
  • Trouble following more than one command at a time
  • Problems remembering the sequence of things
  • Difficulty seeing (and occasionally hearing) similarities and differences in letters and words
  • An inability to sound out the pronunciation of an unfamiliar word
  • Seeing letters or words in reverse (“b” for “d” or “saw” for “was,” for example) — this is common in young children, but may be more pronounced in children with dyslexia
  • Difficulty spelling
  • Trouble learning a foreign language

Dyslexia occurs in children with normal vision and intelligence and unfortunately, dyslexia can sometimes go undiagnosed for years and may not be recognized until adulthood.

Most children with dyslexia can succeed in a school with tutoring and/or a specialized education program and Glenwood Academy in Maryland offers a specialized program.

The students at Glenwood Academy are typically of average or above average intelligence, however, they do not thrive in a conventional school setting.  Most, but not all, have some sort of a learning difference; they have been diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, and dyslexia or simply need a different approach to learning.

Glenwood Academy is committed to teaching the whole child, using multi-sensory teaching methods, creative instruction, as well as a structured curriculum.
