- The dePaul School for Dyslexia provides an alternative educational experience for children with language based learning disabilities and attention deficits. Individuals are taught in programs structured to help promote personal success through evaluation, assessment and specialized instruction. The dePaul School Summer Reading Camp focuses on improving basic reading and literacy skills. Each student receives instruction in dePaul Structured Linguistics, Auditory Discrimination and Reading. As the program is designed for students struggling with reading, writing, spelling or experiencing learning difficulties, admission screening may be required to determine eligibility. The dePaul School was founded in 1970 in Louisville, Kentucky and was locally established in 1983 to provide an educational facility for students who are recognized to have learning differences, especially dyslexia. A full-time school curriculum is provided for these students. Classes are small, highly structured, sequential, teacher directed and paced to maintain the interest and attention of the student. We make no promises as to the rate of achievement of our students. In an environment structured to these real needs, they move as rapidly as possible. Some students have needed only a year of specialized instruction; most students have required more than that. Daily P.E. classes cover the sports listed on the Sports List plus additional exercises.
