One-on-one tutorial support for students with documented learning differences and academic weaknesses in multiple areas. Students in Strategies I meet individually with their teacher on a daily basis, focusing on academic support for content classes, preview and review of homework, use of assistive technology, and instruction/strengthening of reading, writing, organizational and study skills. Individualized support is also available for students with documented math differences.
Small-group support designed to improve and support students' overall achievement as they move toward increased academic independence. Students meet daily with a teacher in groups of no more than four, and focus on organizational and time management, metacognition and self-awareness, language and math skills, learning theories, and stress and anxiety management.
A program of daily intensive language remediation, incorporating one period of Orton-Gillingham instruction and a separate period of appropriate supplemental academic support. (see below for more information about Orton-Gillingham)
In the Connections Program, students work collaboratively with a coach to strengthen social-emotional competency skills. In a one-on-one setting, the coach and student explore topics including self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. Each student has an individualized program that is designed around the student’s strengths and challenges. The coach works with the faculty and staff to maximize the level of support that the student is provided. Our goal is for all of our students to develop skills that will enable them to feel connected to and a valued part of the Marvelwood community as well as the social world in which we live.
