We are privileged to have a partnership the Bodine School’s Erika Center. If you are not familiar with the Bodine School, Bodine leads the Mid-South in educating children who have dyslexia. It is one of only seventeen schools in the country to be accredited by the Orton-Gillingham Academy. The Orton-Gillingham instructional approach is a multi-sensory, structured literacy method that helps students with specific reading disabilities dramatically improve their reading, writing, and spelling skills. The Erika Center is Bodine’s outreach arm that seeks to serve families in the mid-south community impacted by dyslexia.

In an effort to better serve learners in the Wolf Pack family, we partner with the Erika Center at Bodine to offer a specialized instructional reading program on our campus for students diagnosed with (or showing signs of) dyslexia. Through this program, students receive five hours of instruction per week, in a small group setting, with an Orton-Gillingham certified reading teacher, provided by Bodine’s Erika Center.

Typically, similar programs are quite costly and take place after school, when students are fatigued or have after school activities. We are thrilled to be able to offer this program during the school day and at a reasonable cost, including all curriculum materials: $2,000/year. This program is available to non-RCA students as well, at a cost of $3,000/year.

If you are interested in receiving additional information about this program, believe your child may need to be screened for a reading difference, or are ready to sign your child up for the program, please contact rburnett@rossvillechristian.com.
