Academic Language Therapy

Virginia Dyslexia Therapy provides intensive academic therapy with a minimum of four sessions per week. Ideally, sessions take place during the school day when learning is optimal.  Our therapists are either certified through Academic Language Therapy Association or completing their training in conjunction with the Atlantic Seaboard Dyslexia Education Center.

Training classes for Academic Language Therapists are now available in Northern Virginia. Please see for availability.

Students with dyslexia require systematic and intensive remediation in order to master written and oral language skills.  Academic Language Therapy starts from the basic building blocks of language so that no gaps remain in the student’s understanding of language structure.  Academic Language Therapy is a cumulative, intensive, and highly-structured intervention delivered by a professional with extensive training in understanding language and in delivering language instruction in a prescriptive approach.
