Reading and Writing Intervention for Individuals with Dyslexia in Chicagoland
 

Mission Statement

Redwood Day exists for families from across the city of Chicago who are struggling to find appropriate or sufficient research-based structured literacy and multi-sensory math intervention for their child in his or her current school setting. We offer a small, family-like environment where students feel safe to work hard in order to grow into their full potential. Our teachers are highly qualified to equip our students with a variety of tools and strategies.

Philosophy

We believe that with the right intervention and a rigorous work ethic, every student can learn how to read and write in order to help them fulfill their individual ambitions.

Full-Day & Half-Day

We offer a comprehensive full-day or half-day program for students 1st-8th grade, depending on the needs of the student and family situation.

FULL DAY: All subjects

9:00 am - 3:00 pm Mondays-Thursdays
9:00 am - 12:00 pm on Fridays

HALF DAY: Reading, Writing & Math

9:00 am - 12:00 pm Mondays-Fridays


Curriculum

We offer a robust intervention curriculum, including:

  • 75 minutes of Wilson Reading per day

  • 75 minutes of multi-sensory math per day

  • 120 minutes of executive functioning writing instruction per week

  • 15 minutes of assistive technology instruction per day

  • 30 minutes of hands-on science per day

  • Specials such as yoga, dance, pottery, debate, coding, etc.

  • Social-emotional awareness & regulation every day

  • Time spent outside at the nearby playground or beach

Instruction will be delivered in small groups with a 5:1 student to instructor ratio.


Social Dynamic

We anticipate accepting 5 new students for the Spring 2019 Semester (1st-8th grade). We are committed to creating a safe, warm, family-like environment where kids feel free to make mistakes, ask questions, self-advocate and thus grow in their self-understanding and academic performance.

Though this is a different form of socialization than provided in a peer-heavy environment, by receiving all of their intervention services during the school day, students are freed up to engage in after-school and weekend activities with their peers. Additionally, by working hard to close skill gaps in a shorter amount of time, students are being prepared to assimilate back into the general education environment with more confidence and greater ability to engage academically at their appropriate grade level.

Registration with the state of illinois

We are currently deciding if we will be registering with the state of Illinois as a nonpublic school or seeking accreditation through a different third party. Regardless, it will be a process. We envision our full day program being a temporary season in your child's learning journey, providing them intense intervention to close skill gaps as quickly and effectively as possible.
