Curtis Blake Day School

The Day School serves the needs of language learning-disabled individuals through programs that continually benefit from scientifically based research in the areas of reading, oral and written language, cognitive growth, and social-emotional development. Our strategies help students manage the vast quantities of data facing them in this digital age. Understanding and being able to effectively communicate are the goals. Using this approach, we teach our students how to effectively learn, which in turn enables them to learn to succeed.

Elementary through Middle School Program

We are approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education to provide a full-day program for children aged 6-15. Our typical student demonstrates average to above average intelligence but experiences specific difficulties in oral- and written-language skills and mathematics.

Research-Based Curriculum

We describe our curriculum as a collaboration between our certified teachers and the speech-language pathologists. Much of the National Institutes of Health research has provided powerful empirical results on “interventions that work,” and because of the integral role that language plays in the development of reading, the expertise of the speech-language pathologist is sought both as consultant and teacher. Over thirty years, this expertise, together with the Curtis Blake Day School and Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks’ belief that “language is power” has led us to develop a unique curriculum, integrating multiple strategies that have proven highly successful.
