Oak Hill's Learning Differences Programme

Oak Hill is a not-for-profit school serving students from 7-14 years of age who are struggling academically. They work carefully to provide remediation in reading, writing and mathematics for students with learning differences who have been diagnosed with dyslexia and/or attention deficit disorder. Grounded in evidence-based research, helping students via individualised instruction and regular evaluation.


Oak Hill's programme is based on Orton-Gillingham’s multi-sensory approach to learning. Three intensive 50-minute lessons in reading, written language and mathematics are delivered by highly qualified and experienced teachers five days a week, in half-day sessions. Students spend the other half of each day at their regular school.


On entry, each student is carefully assessed and an individualized instructional plan is created and delivered in classes with a teacher-to-pupil ratio of 1:4.


They will be holding a Zoom ‘virtual’ Open Morning on March 18th at 11.30 a.m.


They also offer seminars and workshops for parents, students and teachers in the area and work hard to develop professional partnerships in the community.


To find out more or to arrange a ‘remote’ visit or attend an online open day, please make an appointment through their office administrator, Jo Roberts on +41 (0)22 354 0140 or send an email at education@oakhill.ch.
