Experts in Learning
For over 60 years, McLean has ensured that every student receives the instruction that he or she needs to learn best - in the classroom - not removed from the classroom.

Research-Based Reading Intervention
Lower School and Middle School Classroom Teachers, Reading Specialists, and Speech and Language Pathologists are trained in Orton-Gillingham methodology. Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory methods and materials are used by our teachers in grades K-4 and, as needed, in Middle School to meet the individual needs of students with dyslexia and challenges in decoding. Assistive technology, such as iPad text-to-speech functions and Learning Ally audio books, provides easy access to grade-level reading materials.
