Landfall Foundation Grant Recipient

Posted November 11, 2013

On Thursday, November 7, 2014, the Hill School of Wilmington was awarded a grant of $2482.00 from the Landfall Foundation. This grant will fund the iPads for Hill Project.  We will purchase 5 iPads for our 4:1 (student to teacher) class setting allowing our instructors to use current technology to assist our students. The use of iPads and a variety of research-supported applications can improve the reading fluency of struggling learners. 

The objective of the project is to enhance and increase the use of and access to assistive technology for students in The Hill School of Wilmington's school year program and Summer Program. Current research supports the use of such devices for students with learning disabilities. As a research-based, multi-sensory model, the school's intensive remediation in the areas of reading, writing, and math can be supported by the use of multiple free applications on the iPad. For example: immerging readers will be able to trace letters and practice identifying letter sounds, developing readers will be able to practice phonemic patterns and break and spell sequences, more skilled readers will be able to use read aloud software to hear more complex text and work on vocabulary development.
