Schafer Center Free CE Event!
Join us Thursday, Oct. 19 as Dr. Kelly Christian and Dr. Sarah Cain Spannagel review a process to quickly match resources to distressed families.
Our summer program immerses students with dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities in multisensory instruction aligned with Orton-Gillingham principles. In just four weeks, we help kids in grades 1-6 leap forward in reading, writing, and math.
Spend your summer at Lawrence School! We're Northeast Ohio's only academic program for students with dyslexia and other learning differences.
Lawrence School’s Orton-Gillingham based instructional approach looks a lot like play. Peek into our classrooms and you’ll see students writing in shaving cream, sculpting sight words with modeling clay, bouncing balls as they skip count, and, most importantly, smiling and laughing! But don’t be fooled by all the fun—these engaging multisensory activities lead to serious gains in literacy and mathematics. This summer, we invite your child to leap ahead with Lions Leap!
Lions Leap is not only an intensive dose of specialized instruction—it’s a powerful experience that shows kids who learn differently they CAN succeed academically. In just four weeks, Leapers build new skills, increase self-confidence, gain motivation, make new friends, and find out how fun learning can be!
“We enrolled in hopes of avoiding the summer slide, but I was blown away when I saw how much my daughter’s reading improved. Lions Leap didn’t just keep her from falling behind—it propelled her forward.”

To register for Lions Leap, the following steps are required:
Apply for Admission
Request a summer application, which takes approximately 10-15 minutes to complete.
Submit Testing Results
If your child has an IEP from your public school or has undergone a private learning evaluation, we ask that you email a copy of the educational report and test results to firstname.lastname@example.org. Formal testing is not a requirement for summer program enrollment, but it helps us better understand your child's learning needs.
We'll review your application and testing to determine how Lawrence's instructional approach can benefit your learner. Within ten business days, you’ll receive notification regarding enrollment and if applicable, a link to officially register.
NOTE: Students in our summer program are asked to attend an in-person skill assessment. We conduct these short academic evaluations in late spring and use the data to group learners by instructional level.
Lions Leap has limited capacity, so we encourage you to start the application process right away! If you have questions, please contact email@example.com.
Orton-Gillingham. What is it?
