Summer at Athena Academy is proud to offer a week long skills program for dyslexic students entering grades 1 – 8. This program is specifically designed, utilizing Athena Academy’s unique teaching approach, to help dyslexic students build foundational skills for learning.
Our highly trained, dedicated teachers will work with the students on understanding the way their brains work and through multi-sensory, skills based instruction teach them to use their visual-spatial strengths when learning. The incorporation of our project based curriculum will engage the students with meaningful and fun content that will allow them to apply the skills being taught.
This program is a great way to minimize summer learning loss and boost student learning.
