Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is your student to teacher ratio?
There will be four full-time staff members (a teacher and a teacher assistant, as well as a speech-language pathologist and a speech-language pathologist assistant) each week. We will close admission at 6 to 8 students per session. This low student to teacher ratio will permit us to provide students with personalized instruction.
2. Do you group students by age?
We create small groups based on ability level. Staff members instruct students in small groups, according to learning objectives and levels of instruction.
3. What is the age range for the program?
We admit students from 4 to 10 years old.
4. Can we sign up for all four weeks?
Yes, you may sign up for as many weeks as you would like. We are flexible! We understand that some students may attend their local school district's Extended School Year program in the morning and attend our program in the afternoon. Some children may attend our program in the morning and play with their neighborhood friends in the afternoon. You may wish to attend our program for Week #1 and a theater camp for the remainder of the summer. The choice is yours!
5. Will we receive a report as to how our child is doing?
We will screen all students, in the areas of decoding and articulation, prior to the start of the program to determine a lesson plan and appropriate groupings. You will receive a report at the end of the summer enrichment program.
We have a number of assessments to analyze decoding, encoding, fluency, comprehension, expressive language, receptive language, articulation, and social skills. Please message us if you are interested in a comprehensive assessment at an additional cost.
6. Are you hiring?
We are currently seeking an assistant level position.
