Dyslexia is a gift.

That is how we approach our creative, intelligent students

Dyslexia is often misunderstood as a learning disability, but a growing body of evidence suggests that it may actually be a gift. People with dyslexia tend to have excellent problem-solving skills, high levels of creativity, and remarkable spatial awareness. They are often able to see the big picture and to think outside the box, which can be a major advantage in fields like art, engineering, and architecture. While dyslexia can present challenges in certain academic subjects, it can also be a source of unique strengths and talents that set individuals apart in other areas of their lives. When we shift our perspective and view dyslexia as a gift rather than a deficit, we create space for individuals to thrive and excel in their own unique ways.

At The Bilgrav School, we provide an effective learning environment for dyslexic minds. Our curriculum helps these students reach their fullest potential by embracing cognitive strengths and using Orton-Gillingham tutoring on a daily basis to boost literacy skills. We also offer interdisciplinary project-based instruction that allows grade level comprehension without language mechanics getting in the way. This approach has helped many successful dyslexics achieve beyond expectations - our goal is for every student at The Bilgrav School to have similar success!
