Rollins Center for Language and Literacy
The Rollins Center for Language & Literacy is a professional development program that partners with over 100 public and private organizations to bring the Atlanta Speech School’s expertise in language and literacy to teachers across our city, state and nation. The Rollins Center’s Cox Campus makes their research-based training available to all teachers at no charge, thanks to generous funding from the James M. Cox Foundation.
Our Summer Programs offer enrichment and remediation camps for a variety of ages, grades and ability levels, all in a language-rich environment.
Driven by Research
The Atlanta Speech School delivers a unique approach to language education, focused on the development of the reading brain. Backed by the latest neurobiological research, we customize teaching strategies specific to each child’s needs. This focus puts students and educators on a path to lifelong learning and achievement.`
We SEEK CONNECTIONS
Literacy depends upon acquiring language, developing critical thinking, expanding executive functions and exercising empathy- and we provide the experiences that make that growth possible.
Through serve-and-return conversations with students, we create conversational partnerships within an ecosystem defined by the relationships we build within our Speech School family. Where some schools might demand compliance, we strive to connect with those who enter our doors. At the Atlanta Speech School, children are not silenced but rather are taught to find their voices, develop mutual respect, and learn the value of positive choices.
Support the Speech School
The Atlanta Speech School relies on the generosity and collaboration of our neighbors, parents, partners and community leaders to transform the lives of our students. Every day, we work to positively change the lives of every child through language, and we need your help. Join us in our mission and get involved with the Atlanta Speech School today.
