Students at Delaware County Christian School: a co-ed, independent, interdenominational college prep Christian school near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Group Educational Therapy (GET)

Note: This is offered as needed

The GET (Group Educational Therapy) program provides students with explicit and intentional intervention in order to develop core academic skills and higher order processing, using NILD’s (National Institute for Learning Development) five core techniques in a small group model. GET raises expectations for change within the students; both in their ability to think and in their confidence to attempt difficult tasks independently.

The purposes of this program are to develop and strengthen skills in reading, math and written expression. Through the five core techniques, the students practice reading comprehension strategies, enhance vocabulary development, solidify foundational math computation skills, teach alternative problem-solving strategies, and encourage flexibility in thinking as well as to foster organizational skills and academic accountability.

GET meets three times each cycle and includes resource room activities such as checking RenWeb, organizing notebooks and assignment books, planning timetables for tests and projects and studying for or finishing tests when extended time is needed.
