Hill Reading Achievement Program (HillRAP)

HillRAP supports students experiencing reading difficulties through a multisensory, Orton-Gillingham-based approach.  Modeled after Hill's school and summer programs, the class provides individualized instruction in a small-group environment with a maximum 4:1 student-teacher ratio. Students are assessed at the beginning of class, and informally throughout sessions, so instruction can target specific skills. Instruction is focused on teaching reading fundamentals through a phonics-based approach that includes the components of drill, phonological awareness, word attack, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Progress updates are provided during the course and a parent conference is offered in the last week.

(This class requires a minimum of two enrolled students to be held.)

HillWrite

HillWrite is an adapted version of our HillRAP methodology and is designed to support students experiencing written language difficulties. Like Hill's school and summer programs, the HillWrite class offers a multisensory, systematic methodology in a small-group environment with a maximum 4:1 student-teacher ratio, designed to  support each student's individual needs. Through initial and ongoing assessments, specific target skills are identified for each child and, as appropriate, instruction then focuses on teaching students spelling rules, notetaking, handwriting, grammar and mechanics, and writing strategies. Writing composition work may include learning how to brainstorm, use graphic organizers, compose a rough draft, edit, revise, and publish compositions. Progress updates are provided during the course and a parent conference is offered in the last week.

(This class requires a minimum of two enrolled students to be held.)

HillMath

HillMath provides an individualized, multisensory approach to teaching mathematics for students experiencing difficulties in this subject area. The class utilizes the same methodology and 4:1 student-teacher ratio as Hill's school and summer programs, providing targeted instruction to meet each child's needs. Through initial and ongoing assessments, instruction focuses on increasing fluency, building number sense, reviewing previously learned skills, learning problem solving strategies, and building new curricular skills.

Progress updates are provided during the course and a parent conference is offered in the last week.

Executive Function: Study Skills

Hill's Executive Function: Study Skills class introduces students in a small-group environment of no more than eight students to proven strategies that support increased success with the four executive function domains: preparedness, initiative, focus, and specific learning skills. Students are taught a variety of strategies related to organization, following directions, notetaking, test prep, self-advocacy, goal setting, etc. As each strategy is introduced, students learn and practice the skill, creating a reference book of all the strategies and tips accumulated throughout sessions. This reference book can then serve as a resource for students in the future.
