Laurel School Offers Solutions for Dyslexic Students in the Princeton, NJ Area
The Laurel School offers a range of innovative reading programs for dyslexic students. Our expert teachers use a small group setting to allow each student to receive individualized attention.
Our Reading Curriculum
The Orton-Gillingham and Wilson Reading programs are designed to be diagnostic, prescriptive, and tailored to each student’s needs.These methods focus on decoding and comprehension to help the students’ ability to process the written word. With the use of a multi-sensory approach, including integrative technology, students can truly engage with language. This allows them to overcome the challenges they face in reading and writing. Regular assessments, both standardized and as a natural part of the curriculum, are used to determine student progress and tailor lessons to their specific needs.
