Greenhills, this year, is offering accredited Orton-Gillingham tutoring throughout the weekdays from 8:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. and accredited Orton-Gillingham structured language teacher training scheduled in the fall, winter, and summer. The day school has been suspended for the 2011-2012 school year due to the recession. The day school may be re-opened next school year and applications are being accepted for 2012-2013. Opening would require an enrollment of approximately 20 students.
Greenhills School, Inc. was founded in 1990 as an Orton-Gillingham based educational establishment. Greenhills' range of activities include a one-to-one and small group tutoring center and a teacher training center, The Marcus Davis Teacher Training and Tutoring Center.
All programs are to educate and support students with dyslexia or specific language learning disabilities of average or higher intelligence. This includes students with related disorders such as Central Auditory Processing difficulties (which used to be called auditory dyslexia), speech and language difficulties (stuttering and difficulties with /r/ pronunciation are high risk indicators for dyslexia), sensory integration difficulties (which used to be called dyspraxia, one manifestation of dyslexia) and co-existing Attention Deficit Disorder.
We look forward to helping you with your student's Specific Learning Disabilities/dyslexia.
You are welcome to call for information or to schedule a tour of Greenhills.

Greenhills School's goal is to ameliorate the academic and the overlying emotional difficulties which unremediated dyslexic individuals encounter. Greenhills' programs accomplish this by teaching dyslexics of all ages to read at the level of their intellectual aptitude. Reading achievement reaches grade level or above. When re-mediated, dyslexics can read as well as non-dyslexics, just with a slightly slower processing speed, after they have been remediated through the multisensory, structured Orton-Gillingham approach.
An integral part of the reading remediation involves learning spelling by rules, generalization, and syllable types. Included in this written language training is cursive handwriting which minimizes reversals and the spatial difficulties of putting words on paper.
Greenhills School provides a supportive and enriching educational environment for dyslexic students of average to above average intelligence through an academic program designed to help them reach their fullest potential. Across the curriculum, our structured, multi-sensory and sequential approach is grounded in the work of Samuel T. and June L. Orton, and is based on the twelve principles of the International Dyslexia Association.
