From Stephen Gaynor School

A pioneer in special education, Stephen Gaynor School is an independent Pre-K, Lower, and Middle School for bright students with learning differences. Founded in 1962, Stephen Gaynor School provides a highly individualized educational program in a rich, rigorous, and nurturing environment in which students gain the skills and confidence necessary to learn, grow, and reach their full potential.

Approximately 380 students ages three to 14 attend our school with a range of language-based learning differences, such as dyslexia or expressive/receptive language difficulty. We are also able to support students with overlapping attentional or executive functioning challenges (such as ADHD).

We are dedicated to promoting and advocating for diversity, equity and inclusion within our school community. We celebrate many types of diversity including ethnicity, race, socioeconomic status, ability, religion, sexual orientation, family configuration, language, gender and adoption status.

The Orton-Gillingham Approach at Gaynor

academic spotlight

Orton–Gillingham is a structured literacy approach. It involves the idea of breaking reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. The approach explicitly teaches the connections between letters and sounds, and is particularly effective in teaching those with dyslexia.
