Reading

EDS specializes in interventions for children and adults with dyslexia using Orton Gillingham methods of intervention.  We specialize in reading intervention strategies that are research-based, explicit, intensive and repetitive.

Reading Camps Summer 2019

Decoding Camps

K-2nd Grade or 3rd-5th Grade

9:00-10:00 AM

Mondays and Wednesdays

Students will have fun in small groups learning phonics strategies for sequencing sounds, sequencing syllables, and vocabulary/spelling.

Reading Comprehension Camps

K-2nd Grade or 3rd-5th Grade

10:00-11:00 AM

Mondays and Wednesdays

Students will have fun in small groups learning strategies to improve their reading comprehension, visualization skills, and written expression.

The small group structure of the reading camps is a great opportunity for students to practice collaboration skills, as they can learn the importance of bouncing ideas off of each other and teach each other their ways of understanding the concepts. Many students at the elementary level benefit greatly from being able to process ideas orally and explain their thought processes to one another

Pricing for July: $180 per student for either Decoding or Reading Comprehension. $350 per student for both Decoding and Reading Comprehension.

The Camps will be held twice a week for 8 weeks beginning on June 10th and ending on July31st. The price is a flat fee and includes all 16 sessions. Makeup sessions are not available.

It's a great deal you don't want to miss out on-- you will save more than $50 per session when you sign up for the camps in comparison to individual appointments! 

Piano Lessons

Experience the power of music at EDS! Give your child the advantage of learning a great life skill! 

Research shows that learning the piano can have a positive impact on students' reading skills and learning experience. This is especially true for students who struggle with dyslexia, dysgraphia, and ADD/ADHD. 

Learning the piano is a fun way to build: reading skills, phonemic awareness, sound pattern recognition, sound and symbol connections, working memory, fine motor skills, and more! It's an entertaining, hands-on experience for students to learn important reading skills without even realizing it! 

 

The piano can be a powerful life skill for students to learn. Music can help with memory and processing, and can also serve as a positive escape from stress. 

 

Pricing: Piano lessons are $30 per 30 minute session. The price does not include books and materials. Lessons are available to all students ages 5 and older. Lessons will be offered at EDS with Emma Newton all summer long and through the fall. Emma has been playing the piano since she was 5 years old and is excited to share her love for the instrument with her students!

Lessons are available by appointment. Contact EDS or register online to schedule your lesson today!
