Hope Graham Program at Bancroft School
For Students with Language-Based Learning Differences
Building upon Bancroft's commitment to nurture, respect, and educate diverse learners, the Hope Graham Program (HGP) at Bancroft School is designed for students with diagnosed language-based learning differences (LBLD), such as dyslexia, in Grades 2 through 8.
Recent advances in understanding of the neurobiological basis of learning diversity clearly point to the need for targeted programs that provide early and appropriate intervention. The Hope Graham Program is just that. The program nurtures the intellectual curiosity of these bright learners.
Some of the characteristics of HGP include:
- Class sizes ranging from five to eight students in Lower School, and eight to ten students in Middle School
- Small-group and individualized instruction facilitated by expert teachers in reading, comprehension, spelling, writing, and in some cases math
- A systematic, multi-sensory approach — Orton-Gillingham
- Speech and language services
- Hands-on learning
- Assistive technology
HGP students join their companion class in Bancroft's Lower or Middle School for all non-language-based subjects and activities, including science, computer skills, music, drama, art, and P.E., as well as recess, lunch, field trips, and special events.
By targeting the child’s individual challenges and bolstering their strengths, the Hope Graham Program seeks to honor each educational journey. We provide a comprehensive, caring, curricular and extracurricular program to foster an experience of personal excellence for every child.
