Who Should Apply?

Landmark School is designed for intelligent and creative students in grades 2 to 12 with language-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia. Landmark students possess average to superior cognitive abilities as measured by the Wechsler Scales (WISC 4 or 5 or WAIS). Well-developed reasoning and comprehension skills with relative weaknesses in processing speed and working memory are attributes of the Landmark profile. Landmark accepts students who are struggling in traditional classrooms because their reading, writing, computing, and organizing skills do not match their cognitive potential.

We accept students who have one or more of the following:

  • Dyslexia/Reading Disability
  • Receptive/Expressive Language Disorder
  • Language Processing Disorder
  • Auditory Processing Disorder (CAPD)
  • Phonological Processing Disorder
  • Disorder of Written Language
  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD) with Impairment in Reading
  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD) with Impairment in Written Expression
  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD) with Impairment in Mathematics
  • In addition, students with LBLD often have Attention Deficit Disorder, and/or Executive Function Weaknesses.

We would not be an appropriate school for students with :

  • Nonverbal Learning Disabilities
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders/Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Pervasive Developmental Disorder
  • Intellectual Impairment
  • Primary Social/Emotional/Behavioral Disorders

Landmark School is an inclusive, non-discriminatory community dedicated to embracing diversity and honoring differences. We welcome students of any race, color, ethnic origin, religion, or sexual/gender orientation.
