At the “Literate Brain Linking Researchers with Practitioners” conference, hosted at Haskins Laboratories from July 21-25, Dr. John J. Russell, Executive Director of The Windward Institute (which officially launches in January 2020) presented on how the partnership between The Windward School and Haskins developed to form the Windward/Haskins Collaborative Project. As he explained to the educators attending the conference, the project will entail in-school research, conducted by Haskins scientists and Windward teachers, with the hope that the study will yield greater understanding on which instructional strategies work best for students with language-based learning disabilities, like dyslexia, and why.
The goal of our administration, faculty, and staff is to ensure that every Windward student reads with confidence, writes with purpose, and achieves the skills necessary to lead a life of fulfillment and accomplishment.
An independent school exclusively for students with dyslexia and language-based learning disabilities, The Windward School enrolls students in grades one through nine.
The School's academic curriculum is research-based and multisensory in nature. It is designed to give students the skills they need to succeed in school and return with confidence to mainstream educational settings.
