At Fraser Academy’s Outreach Centre, FAx, we help learners realize their potential.

We understand that there is a broad range of neurodiversity within dyslexia. Some students need support with math, academic writing, visual and/or auditory processing. We can help! Our students learn differently, and we support them in developing the skills they need to become confident, independent learners.

We offer the following Learner Programs:

Length: 50 min/session
Frequency: minimum of 2 sessions/week
Cost: $110/session

1:1 Orton-Gillingham (OG) Instruction

Our expert educators specialize in multisensory language instruction using the Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach. We meet children at their level of performance so that they are empowered to be successful right from the start.

Approximately 20% of the population struggles to learn to read and write. Direct and explicit instruction through the Orton-Gillingham approach is the most proven method to help these students learn. Our one-to-one OG sessions are personalized for your child’s needs.

1:1 Math Essentials

Math Essentials supports students in building the core skills necessary to close the gap between their intellectual ability and their current performance in math. We provide a multisensory approach to mathematics combined with clear systematic and thoughtful instruction that ensures the development of a strong foundation in math. Instructors foster a growth mindset in all learners by ensuring we meet students at their current level of understanding and build up. As students make progress, they feel successful and gain confidence.

This program is ideal for children who have difficulty with learning, understanding, and applying math concepts, despite regular classroom instruction.

NILD Educational Therapy fosters a growth mindset and motivation for learning. Students develop learning skills and build academic fluency, becoming confident, competent learners.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you’d like guidance to determine which program is right for you, please feel free to contact us at 604 736 5575 ext 6003 or FAx@fraseracademy.ca.

Our policy for Orton-Gillingham Instruction, 1:1 Math Essentials, and NILD Educational Therapy is to provide a minimum of two sessions per week per semester. For Executive Function Coaching, there is a minimum of 1 session per week per semester.

Research shows that the frequency of at least two sessions per week is needed for students to maximize the benefits of 1:1 remediation.

This depends on what the learning issues are. We work “as fast as we can and as slow as we need to.” Our goal is to build your child’s skills in reading, writing, math, and executive functioning so that they gain the confidence to take on academic challenges.

In the event that you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please note the following:

  1. Payment is non-refundable.
  2. If a child is unable to attend a session, contact us or the child’s tutor at least 24 hours in advance to qualify for a make-up session.
  3. If less than 24 hours notice is provided, no make-up sessions will be provided and payment will be forfeited.
  4. If your scheduled make-up session is missed or canceled it will be considered forfeit.
  5. A maximum of two make-up sessions will be provided per semester.
