Next week, 67 new and returning students will start classes at dePaul School for Children with Dyslexia. The number represents a 30% jump in enrollment over the past two years. According to Principal Suzanne Rickard, more families and local schools are turning to dePaul to help children who, despite their intelligence and hard work, are struggling academically.
“Here,” said Mrs. Rickard, “kids succeed because we teach the way they learn. Our classrooms, instructional methods and materials are geared to the strengths and challenges of the person with dyslexia.” A rigorous academic program builds the knowledge, skills and self-confidence that equip students to excel when they return to the conventional public or private school classroom.
Tuition aid has also helped to boost dePaul’s enrollment. More public schools are subsidizing private school tuition for students with learning disabilities. Other students will qualify for EITC or OSTC financial assistance. These programs offer State tax credits to Pennsylvania companies that donate to the scholarship fund.
Allied Services dePaul School is a nonprofit, nonsectarian school for children ages 7 – 14 ( grades 1 – 8 ) who have dyslexia with other reading, fluency or organization disorders, with or without ADD or ADHD. Diagnostic testing and evaluation are available.
