Loomis Gateway Academy has decades of intensive teaching experience with students of all ages.

Loomis Gateway Academy is solely dedicated to the needs of the dyslexic student. We want to assure the parent who has given up hope that there is a solution to the problem they are facing.

There are three essential ingredients for a dyslexic student to succeed in school:

Programs

Having the right Programs is an essential ingredient for success. The Structured Literacy approach is the only scientifically and research-based approach proven to be effective in remediating dyslexia. Loomis Gateway Academy uses two such programs for teaching reading, the Wilson Reading System and the Barton Reading System. Our Math and Writing methods (Multi-sensory Math, Making Math Real and Institute for Excellence in Writing) are Structured, Systematic, Cumulative, Sequential, Multisensory, Direct, Explicit, and most importantly, Diagnostic and Prescriptive.

Teachers

What is required of a teacher to effectively teach dyslexic students? 

  • compassion and patience
  • direct experience working with dyslexic students 
  • broad knowledge of dyslexia
  • explicit training in structured literacy
  • highly proficient and/or “certified” in Structured Literacy 

Each teacher needs to develop a rapport with each of his/her students in order to achieve success. An understanding of the pedagogical principles involved in working with dyslexic students is necessary. 

Safe Environment

Has your child been labeled “lazy” “unmotivated” having a “bad attitude” or as “unintelligent”?

These are some of the “Myths of Dyslexia”.  Too often the dyslexic learner is  misunderstood as one or more of these things.  What they need to succeed is a safe environment where respect and trust are integral to their everyday experience of learning.

Dyslexic students can have a “positive” learning experience with the right programs, teachers who understand dyslexia, and a safe place to learn.

When these three essential ingredients are provided, a child can regain their rightful place in “school” in a learning institution.
