Description:

Benchmark School supports bright children who have been identified as having dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, auditory processing, perceptual, or other learning differences.

School's Approach

Benchmark School offers a unique way of teaching children with dyslexia, executive functioning issues (ADHD/ADD, auditory and visual processing differences), and other language-based learning differences. Developed and refined over decades of research and hands-on experience, the Benchmark Approach teaches children how to be critical, analytical thinkers with excellent emotional, social, and decision-making skills. The Benchmark Approach is intentional, reflective, supportive, and teaches the whole child. When graduates leave Benchmark School, they are confident and competent learners who know their learning styles intimately, and can advocate for their own success.
