Children with language-based learning disabilities may be highly intelligent, but even when trying their hardest in school suffer embarrassing moments and failing grades, along with comments from teachers that they “need to show some effort.” Academic disappointment exacts a heavy price on the emotional and social well-being of a child. Left untreated, language-based learning disabilities can have a devastating impact on a youngster’s educational and social future.
With abundant siyatta d’Shmaya, a new school recently opened in Brooklyn for children of the Orthodox Jewish community challenged with dyslexia, auditory processing difficulties, and other language-based differences. Located in Flatbush, The Pathway Study Center, Inc. offers a reconstructive approach to learning, using current, research-based techniques. Multisensory methods, including the Orton-Gillingham approach, provide a stimulating and rewarding educational process. One-on-one tutorials complement an innovative curriculum based on sound principles. As students discover extensive abilities for achievement, they become partners in their own growth.
