JACKSON, Miss. – New Summit School is now taking applications of enrollment for a Dyslexia Therapy Program to be held this summer. The program, which is open to students age 5 years and up, from any school or school district, is a structured, sequential, multi-sensory approach to the English language. It involves reading, reading comprehension, fluency, spelling, handwriting, grammar and written expression. It is research based, meeting all the descriptors of the National Reading Panel report.
The summer program, located at New Summit School at 1417 Lelia Drive in Jackson, will run Monday – Friday from June 9th through July 25. It will offer six 55-minute sessions per day starting at 8:00 am, with subsequent sessions starting on the hour. The last class of the day will begin at 2:00 pm and end at 2:55 pm.
Because research demonstrates that three days per week of dyslexia therapy is the minimum needed to positively influence a child’s learning, the program requires that students attend at least three days, each week. Of course a child may attend all five days a week if parents so desire.
The cost of each session is $40, plus supplies ($50 covers supplies for the summer).
