Points to consider...

  • The Paracletus School seeks to identify students ​who will benefit from a Classical Christian-​based education that provides individualized, ​systematic, and multi-modal instruction.
  • New students are accepted based on psycho-​educational, and speech and language ​assessments, ability level, previous school records ​(two years or less), family interviews, and ​availability for course level. These components ​determine whether Paracletus school and the ​family are compatible to meet the student's ​academic and therapeutic needs to foster a ​positive school experience.
  • The Paracletus School has a rolling admissions ​process-students are accepted as placements ​become available.
  • Please, note enrolling after the start of a class ​term requires support from the family to fill in ​for the child’s area of need. Collaboratively we ​will establish a plan to assist in making the ​transition accessible.

Dyslexia Intervention

Vintage White Tag

Uncover the captivating realm of ​language where the fusion of

"dys" and "lexia" unveils the ​hypnotizing allure of dyslexia.

This condition, while often seen as a ​difficulty, can also be a wellspring ​of creativity, innovation, and ​distinct viewpoints. Let's welcome ​and honor the varied ways in which ​our minds function.

Dr. Aziegbe

My Homework is Done After School Academy (MYHID) is a program that ​focuses on dyslexia intervention. MYHID is a division of the Speech and ​Language Institute and is designed to help those who exhibit signs of ​dyslexia according to the International Dyslexia Association (IDA).

These signs encompass challenges in:

  • comprehending spoken language,
  • decoding individual words,
  • writing and spelling,
  • reading fluently,
  • struggling with tasks involving reading and writing, as well as with rhythm ​and intonation,
  • experiencing issues with fine motor skills,
  • showing disorganization,
  • having trouble keeping up with the pace, and
  • being prone to distraction.

MYHID is dedicated to ensuring that essential skills are not overlooked. Direct ​teaching on concepts that build a system of reading is one of the key principles of ​our program.

These concepts are essential for acquiring language skills:

  • Decoding and recognizing letters and sounds: comprehending the combination of letters ​and sounds to create words.
  • Utilizing multiple senses for learning: involving various senses to improve language ​comprehension.
  • Analyzing syllables and intonation: dissecting words into segments and recognizing how ​intonation can alter meaning.
  • Grasping semantics: comprehending the meanings of words and phrases.
  • Studying morphology: examining the structure and creation of words.
  • Understanding syntax: recognizing the sequence and organization of English.
  • Developing fluency: the capacity to read correctly, rapidly, and expressively.

Our dyslexia intervention programs follow the principles of Orton-Gillingham. To ​find the most suitable program for your child, we assess their skills and past ​experiences. Our aim is to offer optimal assistance for your child to reach their ​maximum potential. Learners at The Paracletus School and MYHID AfterSchool program ​are matched with the most fitting program for them.

-Is The Paracletus School a place where my child can catch up?

First, it depends on the level of accomplishment and the families' targeted outcomes and plan. ​We are set up with natural transition points in our curriculum that allows students to transition ​to other programs at that level or, more likely, above.

Third, Sixth, and Eighth grades are points along the learning journey that allow for a smoother ​curriculum change. More often, we find that children who attend The Paracletus School have the ​exposure and experience that extends beyond the TEK’s and equips them to be critical thinkers, ​reflectors, and doers regardless of their abilities.

-Why does The Paracletus School offer extended instruction?

We are sensitive to the learning ebbs and flows that our children with learning different ​experiences. Therefore, we are set up to provide an extended school year program that allows us ​to be proactive toward potential regression or acceleration in instruction. An added benefit for ​our children with learning differences, this allows for the routine to be extended, reducing the ​feelings of anxiousness that may arise during out-of-school time.

-Classical is for students who are well-equipped and quickly grasp complex concepts.

Mindfully, Simply Classical is designed to spiral and allow multiple opportunities for mastery of ​the content. Although instruction is traditional, lessons are coupled with multi-sensory methods ​suitable for all children, even when learning differences exist.

-Latin is not for everyone, so why do we teach Latin to students of varying abilities?

Latin is making a come-back in excellent schools with good reason. We teach Latin to students ​with learning challenges to strengthen minds, discipline working memory, and improve the ​student's word awareness, oral language, and written expression.

-There is room to say that Latin is not needed or question what is the benefit.

Latin is multi-faceted in many ways, such as being the root of our words or sayings. Naturally, ​as children learn and apply more academic vocabulary, the basis of Latin gives them access to ​not only a word at a time but a series of words. In that series, children are acquiring ​vocabulary and making connections to other words by giving access to and expanding one's ​vocabulary.

-What is a collaborative model?

We believe families are the decision-makers of their child’s education. We unite with you as a ​team at The Paracletus School by providing a fusion of home-school and traditional schooling. ​This model shares the responsibility between home and school. Doing so allows parents to be ​supported and aware of the content being taught and the pace. They can also help their child ​(ren) to get the most out of their learning experience.

    • The curriculum is selected and coupled with on-campus experience where the teacher ​provides the classroom instruction with take-home assignments.
