Once an intake appointment has been held, pre-assessments will be administered with each student. After assessments are analyzed, the Director of J.E.S. will create a unique Individualized Enrichment Plan based on pre-assessment scores and input from the parent and student. Students will engage in one hour enrichment sessions for 2-4 days a week.

J.E.S. will utilize direct instruction teaching strategies as well as two computer-based enrichment programs that incorporate a research-proven approach to enriching literacy skills and other academic areas. Progress monitoring data will be available for parents upon request and/or given out monthly.

The following computer-based enrichment programs will be used:

  • Lexia Learning - Lexia Learning was founded by Bob Lemire, Dr. Cole, and Dr. Littleton Meeks after Mr. Lemire’s son was diagnosed with Dyslexia. Together they organized a company that uses computer technology to create skill development software programs that was created to reach all types of students experiencing reading difficulties at a low cost. Lexia Learning now helps students of all abilities master foundational reading skills. In 2013, Lexia was acquired by Rosetta Stone (Lexia Learning, 2014).
  • MobyMax - MobyMax is a complete K-8 computer based curriculum built from Common Core standards. Subject areas include mathematics, reading, language, literature and informational skills, writing, vocabulary, and science, and state test prep. The curriculum is differentiated based on skills derived from pre-assessments and ongoing progress monitoring. MobyMax encourages the input of short and long term enrichment goals so that each student’s curriculum can be customized to fit their unique needs.
