April 29, 2021 | 293 views

Welcome to Episode 5 of The Darlington Podcast! 

In this episode, Stefan Eady, assistant head of school for academic resources, chats with Scott and Tonya Greene about Darlington's Teaching and Learning Center and Accelerated Learning Program for Dyslexia. Scott is the director of the Teaching and Learning Center and Tonya is a learning specialist and serves as the ALP coordinator. 

  • About the TLC: Founded in 2006, Darlington School’s Glenn Teaching and Learning Center provides individualized academic support to students pre-K to 12 with identified learning differences. Our learning specialists work directly with students in the Center and in the classroom to help them achieve academic success.
  • About the ALP: Darlington is the only school in Northwest Georgia to offer a program specifically designed to support students with dyslexia. Focusing on grades 2-5, the Accelerated Learning Program for Dyslexia provides necessary remediation with experienced learning specialists, while enabling students with dyslexia enrolled in the program to receive the full Darlington experience.

"Overcoming Dyslexia" from Dr. Sally Shaywitz, one of the world’s preeminent experts on reading and dyslexia, is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and practical book available on identifying, understanding, and overcoming reading problems and has recently been revised to reflect the latest research and evidence-based approaches.

The best way to learn more about the Accelerated Learning Program for Dyslexia is to set up a campus visit.
