The Roig Academy is among a specialized independent network of schools throughout the world that are designed for students with learning differences.
Why The Roig?
We understand that children with learning differences, such as Dyslexia and Dyscalculia, require teaching styles and methodologies that are not found in a typical classroom.
Educators at The Roig Academy have a thorough understanding of the learning differences that each of its students may be diagnosed with.
What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia is an alternative term used to refer to a pattern of learning difficulties characterized by problems with accurate or fluent word recognition, poor decoding, and poor spelling abilities. At The Roig Academy, our private school in Miami, we teach our students to read, comprehend, and write through a structured, sequential, multi-sensory, systematic, alphabet-phonetic approach to instruction. The school for learning differences implements the latest research-based teaching and learning pedagogy to ensure every students’ needs are catered to.
How do I know if my child may have dyslexia?
A psychoeducational evaluation to discover and diagnose any learning difference is strongly recommended if your child is exhibiting any behavior that might signal dyslexia. If a diagnosis is received or if your child is struggling in a traditional classroom setting, consider enrolling at The Roig, school for learning disabilities and differences where your students’ educational needs will be met.
