Stellar Academy for Dyslexics
As a private, non-profit, special education school, Stellar Academy provides an effective, specialized program for students with a Dyslexia program guided by the standards of the state of California. Our program strives to equip students with strategies to overcome the challenges of Dyslexia and return them to traditional public or private schooling in three to five years.
Stellar Academy is dedicated to teaching students with Dyslexia the necessary coping strategies to help them succeed in the classroom. Through the years, we have seen this success build student confidence in other areas of academics, social development, and ultimately their personal contribution to society.
Our students are of average to above-average intelligence yet have had difficulty acquiring language and reading skills through conventional instruction. These same students are responding to the alternative approach at Stellar. By using our success-oriented, progressive, multi-sensory approach to instruction throughout the curriculum, our students are developing an enthusiasm for learning.
In addition to our specialized instruction in language arts, Stellar offers a strong academic program guided by the standards of the state of California. Our school curriculum includes science, math, social studies, physical education, computers, PE and art. Through our program, students are building academic competence, acquiring effective work habits, and developing self-confidence.
Experiencing Dyslexia Simulation
"Experience Dyslexia – A Learning Disabilities Simulation" is a hands-on experience, designed to increase awareness of the difficulties and frustrations that people with dyslexia encounter daily. Participants rotate among six learning stations that simulate various language-related tasks similar to those encountered in the classroom and workplace.
