Personalized. Differentiated. Collaborative.
Kent School employs an Orton Gillingham trained Learning Specialist whose primary role is to construct plans for appropriate additional instruction for students that need an extra push or an extra challenge with classroom work. The Learning Specialist collaborates closely with classroom teachers to make a positive difference in a student’s learning. The Learning Specialist works with students individually or in small groups to provide a more focused instruction on a specific concept. This structure allows the Learning Specialist to use a variety of teaching techniques and to offer each student a variety of learning strategies. During this process, the Learning Specialist is in close communication with parents to ensure the success of their child.
