Literacy Specialists & Learning Resources

Literacy Specialists

At Denver Academy, our Literacy Specialists instruct students that need reading and writing assistance beyond the classroom instruction. Referrals are made by classroom teachers after assessments have been given. We use a multi-sensory approach to reading instruction and use Visualizing and Verbalizing and Orton Gillingham methods. All of our specialists have been trained in Orton-Gillingham, the most highly recommended method to help struggling readers. 

We ALL Learn Differently

We've provided a variety of sites below dedicated to finding out more about how students learn and spreading awareness about specific learning differences. Please note that the inclusion of these links does not necessarily indicate the endorsement of such sites or organizations by Denver Academy.
