Baptist Prep realizes children with different learning needs are part of God's plan and should be afforded the opportunity of a Christian education. Early testing and intervention allow those with learning differences to achieve academic success.
Discovery Educational Therapy
Discovery Educational Therapy utilizes a variety of academic and perceptual techniques designed to strengthen a student's specific area of weakness. The goal of Discovery Educational Therapy is to prepare students to be independently successful in the regular classroom environment. This program is recognized and endorsed by the International Dyslexia Association.
This program is designed to assist students in a small classroom environment. Students are scheduled in the least restrictive environment in order to provide them with a successful learning experience. Individual classes in reading, spelling, language and math are available beginning in second grade.
Discovery Reading is a multi-sensory, Orton Gillingham-based program which seeks to strengthen the five essential elements for reading: phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Provided by a trained educator, eligible students in first through fourth grade are taught age appropriate reading and spelling rules through explicit instruction, questions, and multi-sensory activities designed to promote and develop critical thinking skills.
