About the School: The Chelsea School commitment to providing a superior education to
children with learning disabilities, continues today. Our world-class
staff of educators are working on the cutting edge of special education
research and methodology. The commitment to small classes,
individualized multi-sensory instruction, explicit direction and
assessment, and intensive reading intervention based on current research
is as strong as it was 35 years ago. The Chelsea Reading Department has
pioneered and created a reading program anchored on four principles–
Profile, Plan, Program, and Performance. This plan is designed to meet
the individual needs of all our students and begins on their first day
of enrollment. It is the program model of Chelsea School to take every
child beyond functional literacy, and into a world where literacy is
used to enhance one’s own life and the lives of others.
