DTI's Student Spotlight!
Meet Wyatt a proud DTI program graduate and recognized Duke Tip Talent Search Program participant!
When Ashley and April Wilson had their twin sons they knew they were in for a life of busy schedules and challenging demands, but they could not have foreseen just what all of that would entail.
By third grade they thought they were well on their way, but they began to notice that their son, Wyatt, was having trouble learning math and writing. He had struggled all along, but it was becoming evident that he was going to need some extra help.
As a student at Newberry Academy, he was put in touch with an educational therapist, Jeannie Moody, who works with an in-school program for students with learning differences arranged through Discovery Therapies, Inc.
Jeannie began working with Wyatt in third grade, twice a week, in eighty-minute sessions specifically designed to strengthen his weaknesses in these two academic areas. The work was challenging but Wyatt was eager to learn. After four years of steady growth, Wyatt graduated from the program. He now understands HOW to learn as well as how to advocate for himself when the need arises. He is an independent learner.
Wyatt recently found himself a candidate for the Duke Tip Talent Search Program. The TIP program is aimed to identify gifted middle and high school students who score over the 95th percentile on standardized achievement tests and exhibiting an IQ score of over 125.
Wyatt will be given the opportunity to be recognized for his academic achievement as well as be eligible for above level tests and special educational programs. It is considered an honor to be placed with other academically talented peers.
