Notes for Prospective Students
The Banyan School is a non-profit elementary and middle school
program designed to meet the challenging instructional needs of
students with significant language-based learning disabilities.
Specializing in dyslexia, we offer a comprehensive individualized
instructional program, based on the principles of Orton-Gillingham
methodology, with integrated related services.
In addition to our
focus on academics, we provide a comprehensive Social Skills
program, to enhance development of interpersonal skills and
application of pragmatic language.
Typically we serve students
whose academic success has been compromised by one or more learning
challenges, including: dyslexia; deficits in reading,
decoding, comprehension, attention, visual/spatial processing,
fine/gross motor coordination, auditory processing, short/long term
memory, and executive functioning skills; Asperger’s
syndrome; and moderate cognitive deficits.
An intensive academic
program provides a small student to teacher ratio, including
individualized and small group instruction, remediation and
enrichment when appropriate, social skills groups, and integration
of practical life skills and community based experiences.
