Satellite Schools Program

The Community Satellite Schools Program supports at-risk children with diagnosed or suspected Learning Disabilities through one-on-one intensive individualized instruction at their home school.

By subsidizing the cost of instruction, and providing it at the home school of the child, we remove many of the existing barriers to the educational support they need.

Why choose Learning Disabilities Society?

Explicit, Effective and Individualized Instruction = RESULTS!

Individualized Instruction

We work one-on-one with each child and their family to develop a plan for diagnosis and remediation. We assist students in achieving expected competencies in core academic skills such as literacy and numeracy.  

Partnership with UBC

We are one of the only data-driven service providers for children with Learning Disabilities in British Columbia. 

Based on the results from our longitudinal research study with UBC, our students saw a 54% improvement in literacy (reading and writing), in addition to a 42% improvement in Math, relative to general education norms.

 

Fast Track Program

The Formative Assessment System for Teachers (FAST™) combines Curriculum-Based Measurement (CBM) and Computer-Adaptive Testing (CAT) to transform the way we measure and monitor student progress in reading, math and social-emotional behavior. 

Progress Monitoring

Ongoing Progress Monitoring is used to assess students academic performance, to quantify a students rate of improvement or responsiveness to instruction, and to evaluate the effectiveness of instruction.

Orton Gillingham Approach (OG)

The Orton-Gillingham (OG) Approach is a direct, explicit, multisensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility. Self Regulated Strategy Development (SRSD) is rated as the best evidence-based, classroom-proven writing method helping all level of K-12 excel at writing and learning.
