Why is this unique program needed?The human brain is an incredible piece of machinery. In 65% of human brains, the left hemisphere is larger than the right hemisphere. In the brains of people with reading, writing and language struggles, a high percentage show either a larger right hemisphere or equality in both regions. Many times the larger right hemisphere is highly specialized, and therefore the person has great gifts and creative abilities. The person having this trouble with language is often diagnosed with dyslexia. In order for a student with dyslexia to learn to read and process language, several learning pathways must be established and reinforced through multi-sensory instruction.
The Key School curriculum is unique to Western North Carolina. It is anchored in multi-sensory language instruction which is individualized and combines auditory, visual, and tactile/kinesthetic pathways to learning. It teaches the structure of language and the tools to put sounds together to spell words and to take them apart to read. Grades 1st- 8th
