Four Schools, One Mission

The Atlanta Speech School's four schools share a common mission: to help each person develop their full potential through language and literacy.

We follow the Science of Reading to meet this mission, with the understanding that only by constructing deep reading brains can we become who we are meant to be, and make the most difference in the lives of others.

Each of our four schools has its own admissions process, to best meet the needs of each family. Select the Hamm Center Preschool for children who are deaf or hard of hearing, Kenan Preschool for typically developing children, Stepping Stones Preschool for children with diagnosed speech or language delays or the Wardlaw School for elementary-aged children with dyslexia.



The Hamm Center serves children who are deaf or hard of hearing and their families, so they can develop essential language abilities and pre-literacy skills to create their own future.



Kenan Preschool serves preschoolers who are ready to form a pre-literacy foundation in a setting that is at once joyful, engaging and academic.



Stepping Stones

Stepping Stones serves children with speech and language delays to build the language abilities and pre-literacy skills needed for their academic journey.




Wardlaw School serves bright elementary-aged children with dyslexia in an academically challenging setting to construct their deep reading brain.
