Built on the simple premise that children who learn differently should be taught differently, the Verticy Learning program was created specifically for students who are struggling with reading, spelling, or writing for a variety of reasons including dyslexia or other learning disabilities.
Available as a supplemental English Language Arts course, or as a complete homeschool curriculum combined with Calvert Core Courses (Math, Science, Social Studies, and Electives), the Verticy Learning program will help your child develop academic confidence and re-kindle their love of learning.
The Verticy Learning program is custom-tailored for your child. Learning builds on what your child already knows and progresses to new skills and concepts. With Verticy, children avoid the frustration of being too far behind or the boredom of being ahead.
Because of the one-on-one instruction, you and your child control the pace of learning. Together, you may decide to accelerate the pace in some areas and to focus more attention on subjects requiring additional review or remediation.
Based on Orton-Gillingham teaching methodologies, the gold standard in dyslexia instruction, your child will experience a combination of multisensory instructional strategies and interactive online resources to develop reading, writing, spelling, and organizational skills. Your student will benefit by receiving information from a variety of voices including: in the home by a parent or tutor; multimedia online content such as instructional videos; and by hearing literature selections that are “read” by an online tool.
Verticy’s Phonics/Spelling lessons are offered in four levels of instruction, ranging from our beginner level (Orange) to our most advanced level (Red). Based on Orton-Gillingham methods, lessons teach students to think through language problems when reading and spelling. New skills are continuously practiced to make sure children apply and recall information.
Grammar/Composition lessons are also offered in four levels of instruction, ranging from our beginner level (Orange) to our most advanced level (Red). Proven, multi-sensory learning strategies are integrated into daily study to appeal to various learning styles.
Your student will grow as an effective writer as new skills are mastered.
Verticy Literature Lessons
Literature lessons are designed to increase comprehension, appreciation, and analysis.
Verticy Literature includes lessons in addition to novels, anthologies, and assistive technologies that reinforce multisensory learning techniques.
