Multisensory Reading & Spelling Program
will help your child to start learning to read and spell even words he has not seen because we are the EXPERT!
The goal of each of our sessions is SUCCESS and all of our lessons are geared toward SUCCESS and with visible SUCCESS because we know what to teach and how to teach!
The introduction, application, and mastery of our Multisensory Reading and Spelling Program are usually taught in regular schools from kindergarten to grade five and until high school for spelling.
Intensive – We make the most of our time from the beginning to the end of each session. We review and practice the previous concepts, and if it permits we introduce a new lesson. We will also allow the parents to help speed up the process of learning by lending our materials to bring at home, usually word cards to practice.
Structured - We introduce and teach lessons step-by-step starting from the easiest to the more complex concepts. Our structured lesson includes phonological awareness, sound-symbol relationships, letter recognition, syllable instruction, morphology, syntax, and semantics, in addition to comprehension instruction.
Systematic and cumulative – Our organization of materials follows the logical order of the language. The sequence begins with the most basic and easiest elements of concepts and moves to more difficult concepts. The introduction of each step is based on the skills previously learned and is determined by careful planning and continuous assessment.
Explicit - The component skills for reading spelling, writing, handwriting, and comprehension are thoroughly explained; students are thoroughly taught the necessary skills to fluently and accurately read and spell and to improve reading comprehension. We discouraged our students from guessing at words.
Cognitive - We encourage our students to think and ask questions about the concepts we have taught.
Multisensory - We use the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic senses in our evidence-based approach to teaching to improve concentration, enhance sounds, letters, words, and pattern recognition and reinforce learning.
Direct Instruction - The instructions of all concepts are directly taught, thoroughly explained, and modeled by the reading instructor with the "I do," "We do," and "You do" concepts.
Diagnostic Teaching - Our individualized lesson is based on the student's specific learning needs and his capacity to learn and not a packaged one-size-fits-all model. We design our lessons and create activities to help resolve the learner's difficulties
Flexible - We adapt our lessons based on our student's specific learning needs and capacity to learn and if possible, to meet the school's requirements.
We also incorporate strategies and techniques into our direct instruction so that our students can learn how to fluently and accurately read and spell independently and comprehend what they've read.
Our method of instruction also helps to alleviate their many difficulties associated with dyslexia and other learning disabilities.
The intensity and inclusion of the components vary according to the student’s capacity to learn, his specific learning needs, and language difficulties.
Using our evidence-based multisensory structured intervention, and with specific strategies and appropriate techniques, our students have started learning to read during the first hour of their first session. They also experience a high degree of success in each lesson, which also helps them to gain confidence and improve their self-esteem.
