Frequently Asked Questions
Who can benefit from the program?
We offer two different Milan Method program tracks. Our first track is designed to benefit young children ages 4-8 who are just beginning to learn to read. For these students, our program creates a strong foundation for literacy and life-long learning. Our second track is tailored for older children (and adults!) who have been diagnosed with dyslexia or who have experienced long-term difficulties with reading and spelling.
Is this program a good fit for my child?
Our program has been shown to improve literacy for a wide variety of learners, including those without learning differences. We will consult with you and your child to determine how we can best meet their needs. Using a series of activities to measure their phonemic awareness and auditory perception, we can make recommendations and tailor our program to their specific learner profile.
Who will be my child's teacher in the program?
Our program is delivered by our education specialists who undergo a rigorous training protocol and are supervised by Jane Milan, creator and founder of our method. Our education specialists are skilled in customizing the program so that it is effective and fun for every student.
How and where are sessions administered?
Our program works both in-person and online and is accessible regardless of your location. For the time being, we are offering our sessions online to comply with pandemic regulations. While we know you may not relish the thought of yet another video meeting, our education specialists are great at keeping their students engaged and entertained. Even students who hate online school say they look forward to their sessions with us. Each session typically lasts for 50 minutes and most occur 1-2 times per week. We also offer intensive sessions to provide a boost to students who need it.
