School Notes

  • The Brighton Difference - Our approach to hands-on, multi-sensory learning.
  • Brighton is leading the way for students with language-based learning differences.Established in 1972 to serve students with dyslexia and other language-related learning differences, Brighton understands the complex nature of working with students who learn differently.For nearly five decades, our mission has been the education and development of the whole child, empowering each of our students to achieve. Our students are taught using the most current evidence-based practices to target strengths as well as differences. AtTheBrighton School, we believe all students can learn given the proper tools to reach their full potential.
  • Academics: Academic growth is a priority for our students despite their learning challenges. We useevidence-based instructional programs and strategies that engage students visually, auditorily, tactilely, and kinesthetically. Instruction that integrates multiple sensory pathways helps our learners connect to, recall, and apply important academic concepts and skills.
  • Language Therapy: Evidence-based therapeutic reading programs make it possible for students to successfully engage with oral and written language. Daily therapeutic instruction leads to gains in reading, which positively influences performance in other classes.
  • Social-Emotional Development: Understanding how to be a positive and productive member of a school community can be challenging for students who learn differently. Intentional instruction paired with ample opportunities to practice social skills sets the stage for successful peer interactions and a positive school experience.
  • Executive Function Development: Planning, organization, initiative, and self-control are examples of executive function skills often under-developed in learning-different students, yet critical for success in and out of the classroom. Because we take nothing for granted, executive function skill instruction is integrated into every classroom, every day.
  • All therapies are Orton-Gillingham based, working on memory processing speed and auditory discrimination.
  • Small Class Sizes: We strive to keep classes small since we know students with learning differences require very focused, precise, and individualized instruction.
  • Hands-on, multi-sensory techniques are incorporated into every aspect of daily instruction, which allows us to create a powerful learning experience unlike any other classroom learning environment.
