Bright Beginnings welcomes and admits qualified students regardless of race, creed, color, ethnic identity, or place of origin. Bright Beginnings is designed specifically for high potential students whose primary diagnosis is dyslexia. The school does not admit students who struggle in school because of behavioral difficulties, severe attention problems, severe receptive and expressive language disorders or less than average intellectual abilities.
Parents are encouraged to contact the school and request information. Initial questions regarding your student’s academic difficulties and results of a recent Psycho-educational evaluation given by a qualified diagnostician will be requested.
Parents should schedule an appointment to tour the school and meet with the teachers. Tours are scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. The student may visit at this time also. The student may also ‘shadow’ for a portion of a day – ‘shadowing’ days are scheduled throughout the year.
Complete the application and return it with the required documentation. We require current report cards, Psychometrical Evaluation and a sample of classroom work from the teacher.
Admission to Bright Beginnings will be determined on the basis of diagnostic testing , teacher recommendations, and a personal visit with the student. Parents will be notified of their student’s admission status by telephone or in writing after review of all the data. If your child is not an appropriate match to our program, efforts will be made to provide guidance toward a suitable alternative program.
Students who have been accepted and placed on the waiting list may be enrolled as openings occur in the program.
Enrollment is complete when the signed application and fees (Registration and Supply) are returned to the school.
“The absolute best school for children with Dyslexia and learning processing difficulties. My daughter has grown SO much in the past year with her confidence in reading, speaking and friendships!”
– Holly Hall, parent of a Bright Beginnings student
