The Shelton Scholars program provides support to learning different students who have experienced difficulty in the traditional classroom
and who do not attend Shelton during the regular school day.
The program is available on Saturdays and in a Summer morning program. It is especially geared to help students ages six and above in:
- auditory discrimination skills
We use the same Sequential English Education (SEE) curriculum used in our classrooms. Each student receives two hours of tutoring using a multisensory structured language (MSL) approach to reading along with one hour of auditory discrimination and memory training in a small group setting.
The average remediation time is three to four years. In order to ensure that this program will meet the student's needs, an informal battery of tests is administered prior to admission. This evaluation includes pre-tests in reading, writing and spelling. Recent testing (in the past two years) from other evaluation centers can serve as admission testing upon approval of the Shelton Scholars Coordinator.
