October is Dyslexia Month

October is Dyslexia Awareness month, and at Marvelwood we take note of that with pride—as we always do. Our rich and varied curriculum, along with robust support for those who need it, reflects our deep understanding and appreciation of the neurodiversity of all learners.


Dyslexia affects a significant proportion of the population, and at Marvelwood we have partnered with Kildonan to offer the highest quality 1:1 tutoring via the Orton-Gillingham approach. We help students build the underlying and foundational skills that promote greater reading accuracy, rate, and comprehension and written expression more aligned with intellectual capacity.

At Marvelwood, we understand that dyslexia is unrelated to intelligence. As educators, we nurture the strengths and passions of our dyslexic students, and focus on essential questions to foster critical thinking and develop each and every student’s mind—in October and all year long.
