A Guide to Dyslexia

Student-centered learning and research-based instruction for students with dyslexia.

Greengate School at Randolph serves students in grades 1-8 using an Orton-Gillingham approach to provide a specialized program of instruction that meets individual learning needs, while also offering students with dyslexia a full complement of co-curricular and extra-curricular school experiences. Greengate, one of 16 schools in the nation accredited by the Orton-Gillingham Academy and the only such school in Alabama, has educated children with dyslexia and related language-learning differences since 2002.

In 2018, Greengate School and Randolph School merged to allow Greengate students the wider resources and co-curricular activities of Randolph, while Randolph Students will have earlier identification of reading difficulties and earlier access to reading support.


It is estimated that 15-20% of the population has dyslexia or another language-based learning disability.

Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing, and spelling difficulties. Early intervention with specialized instruction is key to a student’s continued academic growth and success. We believe that access to dyslexia support is a critical resource for students. Our school offers an accredited Orton-Gillingham approach that is an unparalleled resource for students and families in our region.

Greengate School at Randolph is accredited by SAIS and the Southern Association of Independent Schools. It is a dyslexia resource in North Alabama, offering a variety of Greengate Services that are open to the community.
