The Gramon Family of Schools offers a full range of academic subjects, including reading, mathematics, language arts literacy, social studies, science and health. The overall approach to instruction is individualized by strengths and needs of each student being central to instructional design.
GFS staff members use multiple and diverse teaching and learning approaches, from ABA and discrete trial teaching to more traditional methods. Our teachers employ individual instruction, large and small group lessons, the multiple and natural context approach, the cued-structured modality approach, differentiated instruction and a balanced literacy foundation.
A variety of curriculum resources are in place at GFS, including Scott Foresman Reading Street, Mathematics and Science and the McDougal/Little series for social studies. Many supplemental materials are also available to maximize students’ learning potential: Handwriting Without Tears, for students with fine motor challenges, and The “EGGS” program, Explode the Code and the Wilson Reading Program for students who need additional support in learning to read. Additional materials are regularly being added to the program as members of the staff search for appropriate ancillary programs and approaches.
