Unlike our regular admissions process, a diagnosed learning difference is not required. Participation in the DVFS Summer Program may qualify as an extended school-year program.
Tutors receive training in our Orton-Gillingham based Literacy program. This program is specifically designed to address the needs of students with learning differences, particularly in reading (dyslexia), writing (dysgraphia), math (dyscalculia), memory (long-term and working), processing speed, ADHD, and executive functioning with respect to writing.
In five weeks, with consistent, individualized instruction, students are able to make progress that allows them to be more successful in the coming school year.
