Triad was founded by a former special education teacher and our clinic offers a variety of educational and learning services which produce tangible results.
While attending graduate school at Boston University and interning at BU’s Learning Disability Support Services office, our founder, Dave Glick, created a proprietary program of advanced learning strategies that promotes independent learning for a lifetime. This program uses a hybrid of several strategies that when utilized allows adults and children alike to process and organize information in a way that makes sense to them. The time-limited, 12 session model is intended for students in their last years of high school and beyond. A must for any student struggling with Executive Dysfunction and organization. It is especially useful in helping with the transition from high school to college for those with or without learning disabilities.
The Orton Gillingham approach is a direct, explicit, multi-sensory, structured, sequential, diagnostic, and prescriptive way to teach literacy when reading, writing, and spelling does not come easily to individuals, such as those with dyslexia. It is most properly understood and practiced as an approach, not a method, program, or system. In the hands of a well-trained and experienced instructor, it is a powerful tool of exceptional breadth, depth, and flexibility. The essential curricular content and instructional practices that characterize the Orton-Gillingham Approach are derived from two sources: first from a body of time-tested knowledge and practice that has been validated over the past 80 years, and second from scientific evidence about how individuals learn to read and write. The approach is multi-sensory so it incorporates all of the students’ senses in the process and is the gold standard for teaching phonics to students with learning disabilities.
Triad staff also offers content matter tutoring in core subjects. The content/subject matter tutoring program offers direct instruction in the subjects the student needs assistance in and also acts as a “Homework Helper” to enable the student to be able to optimize and streamline their after school hours for maximum productivity.
Making sure your child or teen with a learning or neurological disability receives a free and appropriate education can be challenging. Different states have different requirements and some school systems are hesitant to provide services. And this process can become contentious and stressful for parents. Triad was founded by a former special education teacher with extensive experience working high complexity special education cases. Our team at Triad can provide parents with advocacy and representation at IEP meetings to insure that your child’s educational needs are being addressed and that a free and appropriate educational program is being delivered.
