  • To educate students in all four growth areas – emotional, social, intellectual and physical, providing opportunities for children to develop into confident, competent individuals
  • To prepare students for their future educational placement by providing them with the tools and the confidence they need to learn with their disability

Alumni Visit

What a fantastic day it was at dePaul -- we were fortunate to have 4 dyslexic young men, 3 of them dePaul Alumni, come and speak to our students. They shared stories and experiences - some funny, some poignant - and they shared tips and strategies for success in life after dePaul. It was so inspiring for our students to see these smart, motivated young men who all struggle with dyslexia. They are living proof that with hard work and a positive attitude, people with learning disabilities are able to succeed!

dePaul School BOD Votes to Add Medical & Retirement Benefits

One of the initiatives of the dePaul School for Dyslexia is to continue to retain and attract top instructors so we can continue to provide the high level of specialized instruction needed by our students with dyslexia. I am pleased to announce that the dePaul School Board of Directors has approved the addition of medical and retirement benefits to our employee compensation package for the upcoming school year.
