Hannah School

Arkansas's first school devoted to educating dyslexic students.

Our Mission

Our mission is to move students forward by creating a cooperative, multi-sensory learning environment that will uncover and illuminate their unique strengths. We equip our students with the tools they need to overcome learning differences. Academic deficits can be remediated using a proven intervention model for education.

Who We Are

Hannah School is Arkansas’s first school devoted solely to teaching children with dyslexia. The Hannah School helps students struggling with dyslexia and related learning differences. We offer educational programs for children with language-based learning disabilities that continuously promote success academically and socially -- for a lifetime.

1 in 5 people has dyslexia. Dyslexia is a neurologically based learning disability that makes it difficult to read. Dyslexics have average to above average IQs and are often very intelligent and creative. Some of the greatest minds in our history were dyslexics and, given the proper intervention and instruction, have unlimited potential. Sadly, there are many students waiting to learn to read in their current school environment. Dyslexics need a special way to learn, and many schools are not providing it. They are at high risk for dropping out of school, and being trapped in a cycle of illiteracy that will leave them unable to secure a job or remain underemployed. The Hannah School can break this cycle and ensure dyslexic students achieve their full potential.

The Hannah School uses an intervention model that identifies children with learning differences early and provides scientifically proven multi-sensory approaches to learning.

Intensive intervention is built into the daily classroom curriculum. Students learn to read while discovering their strengths, leading to academic success.

Hannah School offers Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy on-site during school hours. Our teachers, therapists, and administration work together to improve upon each child’s strengths and formulate a plan of action for any weaknesses.

A successful reader is a successful learner. The Hannah School chose the kangaroo as their mascot, because like a kangaroo, they never go backward.
