Provident Charter School - West
Provident Charter School - West is designed to serve students with dyslexia and other language based learning disabilities. As the most common specific learning disability, dyslexia affects approximately 15-20% of the general population. While students with dyslexia have average/above average intellectual abilities, learning to read, write and spell can seem like an impossibility. Without a very specific type of remedial regimen, the Orton-Gillingham Approach, students will quickly fall behind in school, lose confidence and motivation, and often become anxious, fearful and dread going to school each day. The future for students who are not proficient readers by third grade is grim. Many will remain behind throughout high school, while some may drop out, develop mental health or substance abuse issues and some will become incarcerated. Provident Charter School exists to change trajectories for these students.
