Einstein Academy's mission is to develop reading and literacy skills in a respectiful and supportive educational environment so students can achieve their full academic potential.
Half of all students who qualify for Special Education are classified as having a learning disability and dyslexia is the most common. Multiple studies have shown that early reading difficulties without appropriate intervention often lead to lower graduation rates, behavioral issues, and lifelong negative socio-economic impacts.
There is compelling scientific evidence that early identification and intervention improves literacy outcomes for most dyslexic students. This intervention is simply unavailable in most Florida public schools. Data suggests that reading disabilities can be overcome best with high intensity, small group instruction using proven reading programs.
At Einstein Academy, all students participate in the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program for Reading (LiPS®) that strengthens phonemic awareness. Once established, phonemic awareness is then applied to improve students' reading, spelling and speech.
Einstein Academy takes a whole-student approach to helping dyslexic students in the classroom. Classes are designed to support the dyslexic student with increased oral instruciton, adequate time, and other accommodations to give each student a better chance of academic success.
In addition to the LiPS® program, Einstein Academy has adopted the curriculum established by the Florida Department of Education and high school students graduate with a standard Florida diploma.
