The Banyan Elementary School is a private, non-profit elementary and middle school designed to meet the challenging instructional needs of students with significant language-based learning disabilities. Specializing in dyslexia, we offer a comprehensive individualized program, based on the principles of Orton-Gillingham methodology, with integrated related services and a collaborative, focused approach to academic instruction. Typically, we serve students whose academic success has been compromised by one or more learning challenges, including: dyslexia; reading, decoding and comprehension deficits; attention deficit disorder; Asperger’s syndrome; visual/spatial processing disorders; moderate cognitive deficits; fine/gross motor incoordination; auditory processing dysfunction; short/long term memory; and difficulty with organization/study skills. Our 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 the integration of practical life skills and community based experiences. In addition to academics, we provide a comprehensive Social Skills component designed to enhance the development of interpersonal skills.
