Claremont Literacy Centre
Part-time Language Program
Our Orton-Gillingham part-time Language Program replaces the language program delivered at the student’s school. The student remains registered at his/her school, and attends Claremont School only for language class 4x/week, Monday – Thursday. Students are taught phonics, vocabulary instruction, reading comprehension, spelling and written expression. This program is available for elementary students in the mornings.
Written expression can be challenging for students. It is one of the most demanding skills, requiring a student to develop an idea or opinion, elaborate, spell, sequence and organize their thoughts. Some students find it difficult to develop their own ideas and need prompting and oral rehearsal before attempting an assignment. Whether writing is expository or narrative, we provide programs to enhance writing skills at elementary, high school, college or university level. Groups and individual lessons are offered throughout the year.
Grade 9 Transition
Students often experience difficulty with organization and time management as they transition to high school. We offer a 1-year mentorship, support service for Grade 9 students who need some additional academic support and strategies to gain independence.
Please call 416.778.6336 for an appointment or to find out more.
“Neil is a different boy from a year ago, not only because his reading is starting to come along, but because he is enjoying school and, once again, believes he can learn and succeed. Honestly, the Claremont School has been a god-send for Neil.”

Our mission is to teach students with dyslexia, so that they may fulfill their considerable potential and gain the skills and self-confidence needed for academic success.
A warm and exceptional teacher, Evelyn provided a wonderful overview of the Orton-Gillingham approach in her Associate Level course. I consider it a privilege to have been her student.
