Serving bright children with dyslexia

At the Wardlaw School, the science of constructing each child's deep reading brain meets the art and soul of masterful teaching to provide individualized instruction for children with dyslexia.

Wardlaw develops deep reading brains for life.

Reading is the foundation for all other learning. While proficient reading requires fluent, accurate decoding, robust reading requires so much more, which is often challenging to the way the dyslexic brain processes language and even learns to read.

Through Wardlaw's unique Integrated Intervention Model (c), students are prepared to be fluent, confident deep readers who think critically, problem-solve wisely and embrace reading as a tool for discovery of themselves and their world.

Wardlaw teachers meet, reach and teach each child.

Wardlaw teachers embrace each child as a scholar, a friend, an artist and a change-agent for our world and teaches them through our Integrated Intervention Model. Individualized for each child, the collaborative teaching model uses a range of evidence-based curricula and strategies.

Wardlaw professionals have master's degrees in Reading, Learning Disabilities, Speech-Language Pathology, Occupational Therapy or other language and literacy fields of study. Their multi-sensory approach is geared for all aspects of the dyslexic profile so they can make the best decisions for each student, so students can one day make the most difference in the lives of others.
