DePaul is a school for children with dyslexia, ADD/ADHD, sensory processing disorders, and communication difficulties.
If your child meets any of the following criteria, he/she may be a candidate for DePaul:
Has dyslexia (often listed as Specific Learning Disability on an IEP)
Has an IEP for reading comprehension, but doesn't progress in mainstream or special ed classrooms
Is cooperative with teachers and other students Admission to DePaul happens through a screening process that helps determine if our program is compatible with your child's learning difference. If you have questions or concerns throughout the process, please feel free to contact us! We are here for you every step of the way.
Step Two: We encourage every prospective parent/student to schedule a free tryout day, or a 30-minute screening and interview in the summertime. Please bring a copy of your student's IEP, psychoeducational evaluation (if you have these--not required), and current report card to the screening.
Step Three: We make an admissions determination and notify you of the results by e-mail, phone, or mail. Your letter of admissions includes your next steps for enrollment. Typically, we have open enrollment in February or March.
Step Four: Parents fill out enrollment documents (application and other papers) and set up financial arrangements through our office. Step Five: Once you have your acceptance letter, we have your application and paperwork, and financial requirements are satisfied, it's time to get uniforms and get ready to start school!
