The John Cardinal O’Connor School is a private Catholic school dedicated to providing an affordable, language-based academic curriculum for children in grades 2 through 8 with learning disabilities, speech or language impairments or other health impairments.
Multisensory teaching techniques are used throughout the set of courses including the Orton-Gillingham Methodology to phonemic awareness. Students are exposed to a full academic curriculum modified to the goals and objectives of their Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Individualized Education Services Plan (IESP). In addition, social skills are taught through Catholic doctrine and a character development curriculum. The John Cardinal O’Connor School’s goal is to teach children the strategies they will need to become confident, productive members of society.
The John Cardinal O’Connor School is a resource for those who learn differently. Through a small student to teacher ratio with certified special education teachers, and additional academic guidance and instruction, students are enabled to achieve their academic and personal potential. In addition, teacher feedback and class discussions are aimed at developing skills and awareness of learning styles.
