LIFE @ RCS
Each student learns differently, especially one with a learning difference. That’s why all aspects of Radcliffe’s curriculum are taught in ways that incorporate the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile senses of each student, focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses with the purpose of teaching them how to learn using multiple senses.
Our curriculum is most often described as “active learning” – which could be as simple as tossing water balloons to learn about physics concepts to rhyming sounds drawn in chalk on the playground to learn about phonetics.
Specific strategies include the Orton-Gillingham method for teaching reading; small group instruction (our student-to-teacher ratio is three to one); speech and language therapy; and occupational therapy.
