Structured literacy is a teaching approach developed by the International Dyslexia Association, aimed at improving oral and written language skills. It is grounded in the science of reading and uses Orton-Gillingham techniques to teach the most basic concepts first, progressing students through the rules of the English language at their own pace. The approach includes phonology, sound-symbol, syllables, morphology, syntax and semantics components.
Customized Learning Plans
La Jolla Learning creates individual learning plans for all students. We take into account previous educational experience and interventions, academic needs, and personality when creating learning plans, and we have an assessment called MindPrint that helps us identify students’ academic strengths and skills to support. Our administrative team regularly collaborates with instructors to ensure that learning plan goals are being met.
La Jolla Learning offers parents an affordable and reliable dyslexia screener. The Neurolearning Dyslexia Screener was designed by dyslexia assessment experts to determine an individual’s risk or likelihood of dyslexia. Its nine subtests imitate an expert assessment process by measuring four basic processing features known to contribute to dyslexia risk, and two reading achievement skills that typically develop more slowly in individuals with dyslexia.
