Jump Start Kindergarten Program aims to prepare rising Kindergarten students at risk for dyslexia for success in literacy and numeracy. Through a play-based, multisensory Orton-Gillingham (O-G) Approach, students will practice language skills including phonological awareness, emergent writing, alphabet awareness, and fundamental numeracy skills. 

The program has been created by experts in Speech & Language Pathology, the Orton-Gillingham Approach (dyslexia literacy intervention), and Multisensory Math. The program will be led by an early childhood O-G certified teacher. 

Upon completion of the program, parents will be offered a parent-teacher conference to discuss student growth as well as teacher recommendations and accommodations for the coming school years.
