The estimated 10,000 students in Staten Island, New York with dyslexia are receiving help from the Rose Institute for Learning and Literacy at Manhattanville College, as the program has partnered with the New York City Department of Education to train teachers throughout the city to use a multi-sensory approach in lessons.

The program is designed to help teach students with identified print disabilities, including dyslexia, in both general and special education classrooms.

The program is taking place at seven schools across New York City, with approximately four school staff members per school receiving mentoring during preparation time and in the classroom from the Rose Institute. The staff members being trained are also receiving course credits and materials, according to the silive.com article.
