Dyslexia: News from the web:
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A school just for children with dyslexia is about to open up here in Colorado Springs.
It’s called Orton Academy… and it’s a free, public education. There are only a few schools like this in the entire country.
Located inside the Colorado Military Academy just off of Highway 24, Orton Academy is prepping to open its doors for the first time this August. For this fall, instruction will be provided for students 3rd-6th grade, but the goal is to expand eventually to K-8th.
Co-founders Lynne Fitzhugh and Mike Pickering say this grand-opening is an absolute dream come true. They add this opening is not only life-changing for the students, it changes the student’s entire family dynamic.
