At Morrissey-Compton our educational therapists and educational specialists specialize in working with children and adults with learning differences. Traditional tutors focus on current academic content being presented in class, while our specialists use a broader, research-based approach. They are able to remediate foundational skills in reading, written language and mathematics as well as teach specific study skills to address working memory and organizational deficits.
Our current team is comprised of specialists trained in various Orton-Gillingham approaches, multi-sensory structured language intervention programs that address phonemic awareness, orthographic competence, reading fluency, reading comprehension, and spelling. We also have specialists trained in multi-sensory math intervention programs as well as executive functioning programs. Many of our staff will also offer work in targeted academic areas, such as a foreign language or a science course should that be needed.
