The Schenck School
282 Mt. Paran Road, Atlanta
The Schenck School’s mission is to build a solid educational foundation for students with dyslexia and to develop their rich potential. Founded by David Schenck in 1959, The Schenck School is widely regarded as one of the top elementary schools in the U.S. for dyslexic students. The Schenck School focuses on an accelerated remediation of dyslexia using The Schenck School’s reading model, a highly diagnostic and prescriptive application of the Orton-Gillingham Approach with small group instruction across all subjects. Critical to student’s success is a specialized, intensive yet nurturing learning environment for students to take risks, read and succeed. While at the School, students learn to advocate for themselves and to celebrate their dyslexia.
The Dyslexia Resource is a non-profit launched by The Schenck School to share the expertise of the School with others in the community who work with struggling readers. Our mission is to empower communities to serve dyslexic learners through training, tutoring, and education.
