The Friendship School, an independent, non-profit school serves children with language-based learning differences, such as dyslexia, in grades 1-8 from Carroll, Frederick, Howard, Montgomery, Prince Georges, and Baltimore Counties. Friendship School was founded in 1998 by a group of dedicated parents and educators. The students are bright and often gifted in many ways with talents in the areas of leadership, arts, drama, music, and/or spatial abilities, but they have difficulties with reading, writing, and spelling and need to be taught in a very specific and systematic way to break the reading code. We use a one-to-one tutoring method, called the Orton-Gillingham approach, that was developed in the 1920s and that has been proven as a best practice method in agreement with the findings of the National Institutes of Health and the National Reading Panel. The Friendship School, through the Margaret Byrd Rawson Institute, is working to share this way of teaching with other schools, higher education, and the greater community through outreach efforts, so that more children have the opportunity to have success in reading and academics and to have many more choices in life. Students are provided with the learning strategies, organizational skills, and study skills they will need to maximize their potential as they move on to other traditional educational settings. Friendship School strives to create an environment in which each student can use their strengths to grow in competence, resilience, and self-esteem.
